An oddity here this morning just so I can post a link elsewhere.

In England, most specifically around the London area, is a traditional dish known as Pie and Licker. This used to be sold in fish & chip shops but is gradually disappearing. Licker is one of those things you either love or hate, but it's certainly distinctive (bright green). You will see it written as liquor in books, as if to correct the spelling, but it's wrong.

You'll need:

2oz butter
2oz cornflour (*cornstarch)
Pint of good chicken stock (*2 cups)
Large bunch of fresh parsley, finely chopped.

Melt butter slowly over low heat, whisk in the cornflour to make a roux. Add stock slowly, simmer gently two minutes, then add parsley. Stir continuously until thick to avoid lumps.
