The Failsafe Butcher!!!

I have just had the most awesome conversation with a butcher!  His name is Steve and he's at: 

Ozzies Gourmet Butchery

55 Hamilton Place, Mount Waverley, VIC 3149

p: (03) 9809 5208  f: (03) 9809 5208

And, oh my goodness,  he knows Failsafe!  And he knows fructose. And he knows lactose.  And he knows gluten.  He knows amines.  He knows herbs and spices.  Squeeeeaaa!!  He's the guy you go to and say "My doctor says I shouldn't eat fructose." and he'll say "Okay, so you can have this, this and this."  WOW!!!!!  I asked him when I just now called him, is he a Failsafer or has he done this for his customers?  He's done this for his customers!!  He says he's been in touch with the Fed Up people for about 10 years,  working things out along the way.

As a result,  Mr Frillypants is travelling to Melbourne tomorrow and he is going to pick up chicken sausages,  lamb sausages, some steak and for a real treat... (oh my goodness!!)... nitrite-free bacon!!!  I have never been so excited about a butchers before and I feel like I just have to give him a shout out for making my life so much easier.

Mr Frillypants probably won't be back tomorrow for dinner,  so you're all going to have to wait until the next day to hear about the quality and if this has all been worthwhile.   

At this link, you'll find the list of over 80 Failsafe Butchers, Australia-wide.  Sorted by postcode.


  1. Steve is fantastic but keep in mind that he does need you to PRE-ORDER your meats and snags, so he can get the meat as fresh as possible. He cannot guarantee freshness of available meats otherwise. Happy eating Frillypants! Kathleen

Sandra's No-Tomato Sauce

I have been using this all over the place...  and a bit like the Deli Chicken,  it has helped save Failsafe cooking all over again.  People on the facebook Failsafe pages are talking about it,  it has been translated into Thermomix-ese on the "Something From Nothing" page and here's mine.

Oh,  but first,  here's --->  Sandra's original.

Ingredients :

1 tin Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed150g Pear, about 2 large halves1 teaspoon Citric Acid1/4 cup (50g) Brown Sugar1 teaspoon Salt2 medium Carrots*, peeled and roughly chopped 1 stick Celery, roughly chopped4 Spring onions roughly chopped3-4 cloves of garlic1/2 cup WaterMethod:
Add all ingredients, except water, to TMX and pulverise on Speed 8 for about 5-8 secondsAdd waterWith MC in, cook for 25minutes,  Speed 3,  100ºC Purée by gradually increasing to Speed 9 for about 15 seconds*Moderate Salicylates

Verdict:  When I first tasted this I thought....    >.<  ewwww!...  but then I remembered I'd just ta…

Real Deli Chicken

The internet community is amazing, isn't it?  I have been a part of special interest forums (infertility, breastfeeding, homebirth, parenting, Thermomix, Failsafe diet) and I love that there's always someone out there with the information you need.  This recipe is exactly that.  On the 'Beyond Failsafe - Biomedical Treatment for Food Intolerances' facebook group, one person asked for some 'chicken-y school lunch ideas'.  Along came Meredith H. with her very simple answer.  She soaks chicken in brine,  poaches it...  and as easy as that you have a very commercial-tasting 'Deli Chicken' with no cruddy ingredients what-so-ever.  Her kids call it 'white bacon'...  we played around with 'chacon', 'bicken'...  and the winner is Real Deli Chicken.

Yorkshire Pudding

Mr frillipants' mum gave me this recipe, which really is the easiest-peasiest thing ever.

I am in the habit of making this with most roasts now, whether it's red or white meats, and it tastes so yummy with the meat and roasted veggies.  The recipe that I have says cooking time is 40-50 minutes,  which is seriously wrong. No idea where they got that? What I normally do is, when I have taken the cooked meat out of the oven to rest, and the veggies are still cooking, I put my 12-hole muffin tray in to start heating up.  I've already put a tiny dribble of a failsafe oil into each cup.  After a few minutes, I take the hot muffin tray out and, working very quickly, I pour the batter into each cup to about 1/3 full.  This will fill all 12 cups, giving the frillipantii 2 each... because we're greedy-gubbinses when it comes to Yorkshire Puddingses.
