Food znd drink
« on: August 10, 2016, 05:57:33 PM »
Some time ago I pickled some short sticks of cellery, carrot and cucumber in a 50:50 malt:balsamic vinegar mix - with black peppercorns.

Too many black peppercorns.

 :panic:

Still nice and crunchy. Just hot, nice and crunchy . . .

:bleh: Ugh, I hate anything that resembles a pepper in look or taste. I do love the opposite though (mint).
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

On reflection, for that size if jar, half a dozen would have been plenty. But, the only ones I had were in the mill. Should have shaken a few out into my palm, not tried to tip them out over the heating vinegar! Half a mill load went in.

OK, so I could still have got some out but I have always been an experimental cook and believe in serendipity.

My dipity was not so seren this time.

Oh yeah, peppercorns. Can't have too many of those. I might have added some capers to the mix and even some tiny white onions. Actually cauliflower sticks are an alright addition to the pickled mix and more than that, judicious use of certain boozes  can embellish the flavors of the vinegar vehicle.

I would ordinarily agree on the existence of "too many" peppercorns, however I just had Cesar salad and apparently got a whole one stuck in a molar, which I discovered whilst brushing my teeth. I'm off the whole thing now.

Never tried them but, after eating a scotch bonnet for a bet . . .

Don't think I'll bother again! Leave those up to you fire eaters.

Asmos eat fire and fart fire. And when they do, Universes are born.

BOW BEFORE HIM!  >:(

No, really. Most of my dishes are just as hot going out as they are going in. It can be... Weird for the uninitiated.  ;D

"Food znd drink" huh? My brain automatically corrected it for me, I didn't even notice until now.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

I had no idea He was that brave!  :smokin cool:
Habaneros!? Really!? Wow!? Those are just a little bit too much for me. I'm not crazy about the Habanero flavor either. 
I love chiles, I eat them everyday with everything.  :yum:
My man is from Mexico, they even put chile in their candies, and their drinks.  :maracas:

If you get tired of Habaneros, I recommend Chile Pequin:

Small but hot "sum bitches!"

Easy way to make ice cream even if you have no ice cream maker:

Put banana, peanut butter, sugar etc - basically any combination of thickener, oil and sugar - into a liquidiser and zap to a cream. Put this into ice cube moulds and freeze.

For a serving take out as many cubes as you need and rezap them in the liquidiser.

Will be trying it after next shopping trip!

I love dark chocolate with chilli in it. Lindt is a bit tame but a small brand called Montezuma do a good one. The also do rock salt and one with an incredibly bitter dried berry in it - good taste contrasts.
