Funniest thing I've read in while.

Or defrost on the bench if you have a cat

Or simply use sewing thread. My grandmother did that 100 years ago already :)

That would be much cheaper and more practical than using floss for sure.

I guess no-one nowadays has thread in the house anymore :)

Not so long ago I had a hell of a time to find cotton thread to roll up some rolled rib roasts of my pigs and goats. Seemed to have completely gone out of fashion. May have to go and buy some from the butchers.

So here is a hint - in addition to the above post:
Do not roll a roast with nylon/dacron or whatever plastic thread and then roast it! The outcome might not be tasty!

I used to get my butcher's string from my local butcher. I bought a big roll of it from Farro Fresh (I think) recently.

Have you asked at your supermarket for netting instead. I was discussing buying a boned out fresh turkey today with the butcher at my P-n-S and mentioned that I might roll up the breast meat. He offered to supply me with netting for the job.

You can still buy linen thread and that does a great job too.

I buy packs of cotton string at the supermarket. I use it for cooking and gardening. It is usually around the kitchen utensil area.

There are Cheese Slicers that has the metal strand as its cutting method too.

I use cotton Strings for rolling meats ready for roasting or rotisserie.

A Ham Knife (the long flat thin bladed type) is great for cakes, breads etc as well as the Ham and meats, just simply an underestimated knife.

I've got plenty of cotton strings. Unfortunately can't afford the meat to go with it. Have found that if I pull the string through some dripping and then through the mouth I can imagine what it tastes like.

To cut a sponge smoothly, use un-perfumed dental floss. Don't think it would 'cut' at a Wedding.

It's to cut it horizontally for filling and levelling. :D
