REVISITED: Marm on the Lade and the village of Jamme

Wardi presents guestblogger

I thought this deserved bringing back to the top of the page, i liked it when i wrote it and i still like it now, Hmmm, maybe this time some bugger will actually comment..

Ok, as you know i was asking questions about the reason Orange jam is the only jam that has it's own name.

Well, after some serious Googling i have pieced the story together...

It all began long ago in the mid 1600s in a small village in a valley in the southwest of England called Jamme.

The village was surrounded by fruit fields, fruit farming was the mainstay of the village and people came for miles around to buy some of the famous fruit grown there.

One of the things Jamme was most famous for was it's fruit preserves which they called Jam.

They had jams of all type; Strawberry, Blackberry, Raspberry, Elderberry... you name the fruit, they had the jam..

One thing they didn't have was Oranges.

Now, over on the other side of the valley was another village, near the river Lade was the little village of Marm, and one thing Marm had a lot of was Oranges, the people of Marm grew the best Oranges in the land and being a little jealous of the famous Jamme they decided to make a preserve of their own with their wonderful Oranges.

So this is what the did, but they knew they had to come up with different name, because if they called it Orange jam the other village would get the credit and the people of Marm couldn't stand that.

The name they came up with was Marmalade being for the village of Marm on the river Lade the name made perfect sense.

So ladies and gentlmen, if you ever wondered why it is that we don't have Orange jam, this is the story..

Getting the voice heard!

Wardi presents guestblogger
Howdy, i told you i'd be back, mind you i haven't added anything here do you think anyone even comes to look anymore?? Hmm, maybe i need a worldwide advertising campaign, free toast give aways and competitions...

Maybe i can enter into a sponsorship deal with a famous footballer, anybody got David Beckhams number on them?? All i'd neeed to do is get him to eat a bit of toast during his post match interviews or when he's out with the kids get him to offer them toast anytime a photographer come near...

So.. not really about toast this entry was it, more like a random waffle on the fact that nobody but me will probably read it...

Ah, well..

Return of the white slice

Wardi presents guestblogger

Howdy Toasties, my new years resolution was to get in here more often, so i shall begin my toastual wanderings in the next few days and report back ASAP :)

In the mean time try a toasted cheese sandwich, i heartily recommend them, slice a bit of tomato and throw that in there if you're feeling frisky :)

Thick or thin???

Wardi presents guestblogger

Hello Tasties...

What, in your very valuable opinion, is the best thickness of bread for toast??

The missing butter!!

Wardi presents guestblogger
You want to hear something odd?? Here... listen...

Today i was having a coffee, well hot (it was bloody fantastic)chocolate actually...and in this well known chain of coffee emporiums i noticed someone eating Jam and toast...

Normal i hear you say, some one in a cafe just eating toast and jam... yeah, normal!

NOT!!!

Until i tell you this bit!!!

They didn't use any butter!!!! Just Jam!!!!! Urghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!

I had the urge to shout and point, I very nearly went over and called them a weirdo!!

So, the question is do any of you out there in the Toastsphere eat your toast in strange ways, except of course T, we all know about your talking to your toast urges now fella ;) "Burn, you damn toast!! BURN!!!"

Toasted sandwich

Today, for my breakfast I had a toasted bacon and egg sandwich, it was yummy :D

*The bread I used was Warburton's thick sliced white and I cooked it on a Linkat Salamander for approximatly 1 minute a side, for spread I went traditional with some Anchor butter and a dab of HP sauce ;)*

Attack of the Preserves.

Wardi presents guestblogger
People who are about to eat toast i salute you!!

Rant time!!

Why, oh, why are those little pots of jam and marmalade you get in hotels and coffee shops never big enough to cover the entire slice??

You open the little container of your chosen spread (blackcurrant jam in this case), you scrape it out and onto your toast with your knife, it is at this point you can see that it will not cover the entire slice, so you check the little basket for more and then you find that you have taken the last blackcurrant jam, and there's never a waitress(or waiter) around when you want one to top up the jam basket, so unless you want to mix in a bit of strawberry or raspberry you'll have to make do...

Now comes the hard decision... do you spread the jam all over in a too thin way or do you pick a part of the toast to remain jam free... the corners maybe or just one half...

Personally i spread the jam in the centre, that way i can eat all round the edges until i reach the jammy middle, it's the same tactic i employ for jam donut consumption.

Anyhow, that is my rant of the day. I hope the same misfortune does not befall you dear Toastofiles.

Be safe and remember... Eat Toast :)

A New Toast...

"Toast?" asked my friend the other morning.

"The Bride and Groom!" said I, raising my cup of tea!! :)

Oh, you stupid piece of toast, why won't you burn?!!

Flower told me a few weeks ago that she heard T shouting at his toast and she wanted me to try to come up with something in which to use his angry words...

Using them as the title seemed a good start.

It got me thinking as to why T wanted the toast to burn, was he not happy that it had already been cooked twice?? Did he feel the need to cook it a third time??

Imagine if there was a recipe which required you to cook toast again??

first you make the bread, then you cook it, then you slice it up and toast it... i wonder what could come next...

Maybe toast soup??

Maybe T wants to try a bowl full???

You can have bread to dunk in it :)

Marmalade or Orange Jam??

Jam or not Jam...

Strawberry, blackberry, raspberry...

Jams all of them,and all lovely and jammy but one jam above all others gets it's own name...

Why are Oranges so special that they get their own name??

Not Orange Jam, oh no... Oranges are better than that...

Orange Jam gets to be called Marmalade...

This is the question we must answer...

Perhaps we can give all the other jams of the world their own name... maybe Strawberry jam should be called "Ortignul" from now on.

Blackberry jam should be named "Gerungal"

Elderberry jam can be "Termulsack"

Raspberry jam can be called "Hautygon"


"What do you fancy on your toast this morning Ethel? How about a nice bit of Gerungal or how about some tangy Ortignul??"

"No Ted, you know what i fancy? A nice toasted tea cake dripping with Termulsack"

(That last one sounds a bit like a problem of the testicular area i know but still a names a name...)


Jams of the world should be free to have their own names and no longer should the simple Orange be alone raised above the others, equality, parity, this is what is needed!

The next next best thing...

Toast is the next best thing to sliced bread...

It's sliced bread with a tan ;)

It is the more well travelled slice of bread...

But it may have sand between it's toes...

That's Toast.

But you know, isn't toast just sliced bread??

Origins of Toast®

Hello all Toastophiles...

Welcome to the toast® post.

Grab a slice and help yourself to butter, jam, any of the spreads available...

Did you ever wonder where toast® came from??

Think about it, it's bread, it's already been cooked once and who'd think to cook it again?? Isn't that just over kill??

"Olaf? How's your bread??"

"It's good but it needs a bit more cooking i reckon!"


But it happened, some time in the distant past some bright spark decided to cook it again...

Or was it a mistake?

Can you picture the scene, long ago in some medieval hall somewhere a knight knocks a candle on his slice of bread and thinks, damn, it's the last slice i better eat it any way...

Who knows where and when the first piece of toast® was cooked and consumed??

But aren't we glad they did :)
