    Yeah, I remember how revolutionary it all seemed at the time. Still one of my favourite ever films.

    Takes ages and loads of kitchen towel as well.

    I normally wrap it up with the kitchen towel then put the big soup pot filled with water on top to help press it and drive out the water/brine

    The city of Baltimore U.S gets its name from the Irish term Baile an Tí Mhóir, meaning town of the big house.
