If you are interested, we have a traditional Guernsey dish called "Bean Jar", a variation on a French Cassoulet.
Unfortunately I couldn't pm or email you.

Post your recipe and I'll check it out. PM me so I know where to look.

Giving the abalone a good flogging is the age old method, but if they are very finely sliced and cooked very briefly (after cleaning of course) they are quite nice. Our Kiwi brothers & sisters are the experts.

I now live away from the coast and have no access to fresh abalone now. Virtually all collected abalone is exported. A real shame.

Taking off and flying are optional. Landing is mandatory
