Panacklety is a traditional Tyneside dish consisting of layers of sliced meat and vegetables - originally leftovers from the Sunday lunch. There are many variations of this recipe, depending how your Granny made it. Today, we use slices of corned beef and fresh vegetables - and it's delicious.
On Tyneside 'Hinnie' was a term of endearment, especially for a young child. A tea-time favourite was a kind of griddle scone, which made a whistling or singing sound whilst cooking so impatient youngsters who asked when they would be ready were told 'soon - it's still singin' hinnie'.
