Visiting my grandparents, we would sit in the kitchen at their 50’s Laminex table. It had a marbled grey top and was matched by red chairs. I don’t remember anything ever changing in that room, that’s probably why I loved it and remember it so vividly. There was a red biscuit tin that had flowers on it made from dry biscuits and popcorn sitting in the corner. Recently, I found a black version of it in a charity shop. It was a bit beaten up compared to my grandmother’s but I bought it anyway and gave it a good scrub with hot soapy water. The funny thing is, I had noticed the interesting glass lid on my grandmother’s tin, but hadn’t realised what it was. Inside the tin, are instructions that refer to a BLUE MAGIC DRY-NOB. I’ll let you read the instructions below, but basically, it’s to keep your biscuits fresh and crispy. Who knew? I’m currently storing my doilies in there instead of biscuits because I don’t know what is in the BLUE MAGIC DRY-NOB. Still, I probably shouldn’t worry, my grandparents ate biscuits stored in their red version and they lived to be ninety and one hundred….
