Unfortunately, I haven’t managed to write a special blog post for my favourite food-based holiday this year.
I wanted to but, when I found out when the event was, I was too ill. In fact, I still am, to an extent.
Not ill enough to impair my brain function, anymore. I can write again but there is one thing that the remnants of my cold still have over me – I can’t trust my sense of taste right now. Or my sense of heat, for that matter.
So, instead of me writing something topical and special, here’s a post I pre-prepared about one or two of my weirder finds. A couple of the more out there products that I promised I’d be showcasing this year.
Today, everyone, I’d like us to take a look at another item from Grim Reaper Food’s gift box. Something that I didn’t want to talk too much about at the time, for fear of ruining the company’s biggest surprise.
You see, what we have here may be a scary little bottle of extract but it’s not like the rest of its kind. It’s not about the heat.
No, unlike most extracts, the Grim Reaper’s Raging Goblin isn’t a concentrated resin of extreme chilli firepower. In fact, it isn’t concentrated at all. It is hotter than the chillies it was made from but that’s only due to the loss of their flesh.
Because what this product actually is is jalapeño juice. All the oils, both heat and flavour, from a good number of green jalapeños, mixed with a little bit of lime.
And it all comes packaged in a black-tinted aromatherapy oil bottle.
Hello again everyone and welcome back to my kitchen.
Before we begin, though, I have to warn you, the following recipe is intended to feed a minimum of four serious spice freaks. In fact, the FDA strongly recommend that an average man of seventy to seventy-five kilos not eat more than a quarter of the cake I am about to bake.
Happy solstice spice lovers, for you and not for me. Why? Because today I have to try this:
You’ve been seeing a few things from the Chilli Pepper Company recently and this is why. Some time ago, I tried the original version of Hell… Unleashed and was not exactly impressed. They sent me a review box in the hopes that they could convince me give their second batch a go.
