Apart from my family , the thing from Denmark we all love is their Salty Balls . We get to taste them over there and sometimes over here , although lately we’ve been treated to the chilli and cocoa dusted ones. So my ears pricked up when today I heard my Walberswick breakfast buddy,Simon Mayo interviewing someone from Scandinavia ( because due to their TV detectives, all things Scandinavian are very popular ) who is an expert in liquorice .Apparently they love it and we hate it ( unless you happen to live at 106 Coldershaw ) and do you know what the secret ingredient is ? Answer : Ammonium Chloride .
I’m sure I did something with that and the chemistry teachers’ sandwiches.
