Foodie stuff, Part II
Well, since ya troll wankers got the other food thread closed...we just can't have nice things, eh? Pretty damn sad...


Anyhoo, I made some really nice hot sauce today.

Kind of in the Aussie style with orange habanero, mango, rice vinegar, lime juice, ginger, sea salt, honey, roasted garlic, and oh yeah...a metric craptonne of Yellow Carolina Reaper, Chocolate Carolina Reaper and 7-pot "Lava" chiles. Also a shake of red habanero/ghost pepper/chile de arbol powders for fun and a layered heat/taste profile too. But, it's mainly Reapers.

The dried Reaper/7-pot chiles were reconstituted in brine in the fridge for like a week, then picked through to take out any stem bits and chop to size.

Everything went in a stainless steel pot and got brought to a boil for a couple minutes then simmered down for awhile. (Oh yes, I had the beefy 1970s range fan on and fans going in the apt. The door to the room where Tiki stayed put was closed also)

Then the dreaded part...blending my 1.5-2M Scovile steaming hot sauce in the blender. Was realllly careful there not to gas myself. Poured it into clean and boiled jars and lids and we're done.
Except for the pain to come...Muhahahahahaaaa!!

Starting out


After a nice long simmer


Hmmm, evil chunks


Blender time


Oh hell yeah...


In for the close up



Just look at that wicked color!!!!

That sauce has to be dangerous...

That's the idea.
Maximum overkill, but still tasty. ;-)

Well, eating natural sauces and not the capsaicin extract stuff rampant in the USA, it really does have nice flavors too.

But ya, you have to build up your tolerance to it over time. I started in 1996. ;-)
