credit crunched?

Hi there CFR regulars, we have had some feedback via facebook that a few of you would value a way of still buying everything on the CFR shopping lists at the same price as when we launched the site, despite food price inflation…  So we put on our thinking caps and here you are:

*Some items on this list differ from the original on the website for example passata instead of chopped tomatoes, brown lentils instead of red, chana dal beans instead of chickpeas and lemon juice instead of lemons. This is due to these products being cheaper now than the original ingredients. These can all be used in the same manner as the original ingredients so there is no need to change your cooking methods.
