Knife #3.


It turns out that cheap Damascus is cheap and about as straight as a dog's hind leg. 

#1575180 What was the last spicy meal you cooked?

Posted by Shorerider on 13 August 2018 - 03:14 AM

Chicken breast peices, crumbed (breaded) with home made bread crumbs, and side salad with baby spinach, rocket, tomato, cucumber, shredded carrot, green beans, a ripe Jalapeno (in winter :dance: ) topped with hickory smoked Cayenne flakes, and a splash of balsamic vinegar. Sauced with my own Scarlet Pain sauce.

Looks delicious.  :clap:


Aesthetically, would it have been better to add the basil and oregano after roasting to avoid the black specks?


I take it you are freezing those vac-packed portions for later use?

Penne Pasta Bake topped with homemade sausage, freshly grated Parmesan cheese, ground black pepper and smoked Cayenne powder. 



One of my favorite things to eat.



#1569974 Hot Sauce Snob

Posted by Shorerider on 21 July 2018 - 02:19 AM

Yes I use water when I cook. However when making hot sauces I rarely do. I find the liquid that is contained in the ingredients, combined with the citrus juice and vinegar that gets added is more than enough to thin out a sauce. For me it is usually just a balancing act of lid off/on during simmering to adjust the thickness of a sauce. On the odd occasion I need to thin out a sauce, I would normally just add a splash of the particular vinegar in the sauce I am making at the time. 


My sauces are small batch, and do vary from batch to batch depending on what particular peppers and other ingredients I have on hand at the time. Being a hobby sauce maker, I have the luxury of being able to vary a particular sauce from batch to batch.

Tonight's dinner, even though it wasn't cooked it was bloody spicy. Polish sausage, homemade sausage, Black pepper Pepato cheese, truss tomatoes seasoned with salt, pepper and smoked Cayenne powder and my own Scotch Bonnet black olives. 



Here's the black olives I brined just over a year ago. I included some Scotch Bonnets in the mix. The olives turned out full of Scotch Bonnet flavor and are very spicy, true chillihead heat level.

He talks of disliking vegetable fillers like carrots and tomatoes, yet does it himself. But what gets me is the fact one of his ingredients is water? I'd much rather someone add carrots and tomatoes to a sauce over water which has no flavor whatsoever.
