Hey folks, it’s february and I really appreciate all of you, for reading my reviews and making this blog feel worthwhile. Chilli is my love and my passion but it’s you, dear readers, who give my writing meaning. And so, with that in mind, I’d like to share my valentine’s day chocolates with you.
Chocolates which are, of course, very on brand for my site ;).
This year’s come to me from Somerset Chilli Garden – Not to be confused with The Somerset Chilli Co. – and were actually sent to me a little in advance of their public release. Since a friend of mine happens to live nearby and put me in touch, back when they were still just prototypes.
What I have now, however, are the finished release. Just a little bit early, in order to give you all a good look at what’s inside, before you buy.
Happy halloween, everyone!
This year, the haunted all hallows eve falls on one of my recipe days and I’m bringing back an old favourite to celebrate. A little something with a lot of heat, once posted on my (now abandoned) Imgur account, several years ago.
Yet these white chocolate and carolina reaper truffles never made it to my site properly. Only an 💀edited version💀, making use of Grim Reaper Foods‘ old chipotle and orange extract.
So, now that my skills and understanding have both had time to improve, I’m going to right that wrong and bring you an update on my favourite recipe for working with the current world record holder. And, more specifically, for enjoying its flavour at a somewhat more manageable heat.
Even if it is impossible to tame the reaper completely.
Happy christmas eve, everyone, who wants chocolate?
This month I had chance to borrow a little bottle of extract off a friend but, like the Chilpōctli that we saw recently, it’s not a super hot one. In fact, it’s another from Grim Reaper Foods’ lineup, the same strength as their Raging Goblin.
Their chipotle and orange “Sepulchre”.
Perfect for spicing up milk chocolate truffles.
Greetings, spice lovers, would you believe that I have yet another company to show you freebies from?
