Hello again everyone, I hope that you’re enjoying your extra day this leap year.
Me? I’m making good use of it with a later than usual recipe post, on the 29th of february. Because it just so happens that, this year, it’s a saturday.
And what kind of recipe do I intend to show you this month? Why, something simple, mexican and a staple to my home cooking, in order to contrast with last month’s second-hand japanese recipe.
Today, I’m making enchiladas again but, unlike the previous batch, I’m not making them bean-based, for my family, or using someone else’s salsa. This recipe is all mine!
Welcome back, everyone, to another weekend recipe post. With
finally uploaded earlier this week and a new batch of goodies from them recently added to my collection, today seems like the perfect time to talk about how I use their 7-pot sauce.
Solaris is a tangy yellow pepper sauce that only really comes into its own on hot food – Preferably meat, fish or cheese – where its equally tangy, fruity, scorpion-like pepper and honeyed mustard notes become a lot more apparent.
I played around with it a tonne when I wrote but nothing ever seemed to outshine the simple blend of melted cheese and either ham or tuna in a panini. The mustard with the meat, the tang against the cheese and the fruity chilli and yellow pepper notes to pair the two together. What could possibly be better?
Well, I set out to find out and came to the conclusion that there was one solitary answer: The same thing with added basil. Perhaps not the revelation that I was looking for but a great find, all the same.
So, today, we’re going to make my homemade ham, cheese and basil panini with Solaris sauce. A real lunchtime favourite of mine.
Hey folks, it’s review day again and again we’re looking at Cowley’s Fine Foods but there’s a bit of a difference this time:
This is not their vegan jerky and it’s not in the same white-labelled clear plastic that I’ve come to expect from them. It’s their Exotic Jerky Trinidad Scorpion, wrapped in a rather fancier card sleeve, windowed so that you can still see the clear packet within.
