Have you ever tried a battered Mars bar? Incredible. A heart attack in a tube.
But just to make you either very sick or very hungry, check out these. They’re apparently really nice:
Deep fried strawberries
There’s also deep fried butter…
…and deep fried beer…
…but the strawberries win it.
Enjoy following the recipe.
Well, in the UK it’s actually not, but it used to be! What we call ‘margarine’ isn’t normally margarine, it’s normally sunflower spread or something like that. Margarine is pretty unhealthy, so people tend not to go for it any more.
But I was chatting about it last night, and an interesting question was asked: I know that sunflower spread isn’t margarine, but seeing as everyone calls it margarine, doesn’t that sort of make it margarine?
If I go to a supermarket and ask for a tub of margarine I know what I’m expecting, and the shop assistant knows what I’m expecting – even though it’s not actually margarine.
So – what is margarine? More importantly, what is truth? What I say truth is, will be different to what someone else says. Is truth subjective and malleable, like the meaning of the word margarine, or is truth objective? Are the shop assistant and I simply both wrong? Do two wrongs make a right?
It’s complex I know, but there is an answer! Thankfully, truth is not only objective, truth is a person who we can actually know. Jesus Christ is the truth (John 14:6), and he’s the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8). I don’t think he cares what we call margarine, but he wants to ask us: ‘Who do you say I am?’ (Matthew 16:15)
