Tuesdays are gardening days in Spain with lovely lunches in payment!!
Today on the table was a jar of Hot Chilli Pickle Sauce made by my friend Pat.
I had commented on it before so she had kindly written out the recipe for me titled-
"Rather Vague Recipe for Chilli Pickle Sauce!!"
We love tasty food and sometimes a curry hits just the right spot!
We have a little Indian Restaurant near us where we go. After our last visit I thought about its name-
I remembered tucked in amongst our Cookery Books was The Far Eastern Odyssey by Rick Stein.
I actually love Cookery Books especially ones that are well illustrated.
This book has wonderful pictures, pictures that remind us of our trip to Thailand to visit Briony when she was travelling.
And on the first few pages chillies in huge piles
Red and Green.
Pat's recipe is rather vague because you might use dried chillies or you might use fresh chillies.
You might use very hot chillies or the chillies may be less fiery!
You might like more sugar or vinegar according to personal taste. I think you might be getting the picture.
I have been caught with chillies before and always remember the story of a little girl called Katie who made pies in her garden in Jakarta from fresh chillies!
So it was scoop the seeds out with a spoon and wear rubber gloves!
Always Garlic and a good dollop of ginger.
Whizz ! Add some white wine vinegar.
Add a layer of Lubrin Olive Oil. We helped pick those olives personally! Read a little more here!
And here we have it a jar of Chilli Pickle Sauce. It has been sampled and declared to have a kick that is not in any way vague!
If you would like the recipe I will post it but I can guarantee yours will not taste like Pat's or mine!!
