The taste test

Some time ago, Dr Nik made some pickled jalapenos and gave a jar to me. Since they were pickles, fresher wasn't better so it needed to sit around for a bit. Well... it was time for the taste test. Dr Nik's own versus the all Australian company made from imported ingredients off the shelf version.

So how do you compare them? Well... first you make the condiment...

Mmmmm. Excuse for Mexican food. Then you put it on some corn chips with some grated cheese on top, douse liberally in Tabasco sauce, and forget to take a photo. Then you try them side by side. Which was better? Dr Nik's by far! Why? The other one tasted a bit like jalapeno and a lot like vinegar. Dr Nik's tasted a lot like jalapeno with some nice spices added. When the jar is finished I'm going to keep the pickling rock just in case he decides to come back just to make another batch.

Yum! Did you get his recipe, or was that just it?

He just handed over the jar of stuff he made! I'm not sure where he got the recipe from. I'll have to ask. By the way, we've also been getting into the mole you left for us :-)

hmmm I cannot remember where the recipe comes from. Possibly my chilli cooking book. I have chillis in my fridge waiting to be pickled at the will happen one day

Glad you enjoyed
