There’s nothing pretty about this meal, in fact, it’s pretty ugly. Ugly but delicious.

This is a meal for microbiologists. I bought a packet of chicken wings two weeks ago and split them into two lots and vacuum-packed each lot. I ate the first batch a couple of days after the purchase date. Tonight’s lot found its way to the back of the refrigerator and I forgot about them. While the refrigeration and vacuum packing assists in inhibiting bacterial growth, it was probably a bit too long. I didn’t want to waste them so I basically sterilised them in an autoclave, also known as a pressure cooker. Rather than a 15-minute cook I went belt and braces and added an extra 5 minutes for a 20-minute cook.
