    Default A most amazing and brilliant discovery

    As you all know, I like to cook.

    One of my specialities is chille con carne, two days worth in a big cauldron


    500g beef mince
    500g lambs mince
    2 med onions
    8 tomatos
    loads of mushrooms
    4 sweet peppers
    2 chille peppers
    1/4 l of water
    tin of mixed beans
    sachets of chille con carne mis
    crusty bread.


    Not so special, huh ?

    But I put the last bit on for me, after the missus went to bed. I played a bit of my game, and forgot it was on the stove.
    So I goes out to give it a stir, and a little bit has stuck to the bottom of the pan and burned a little. Scrape as I could, I couldn't get the last bit of burney stuff off the wooden spoon, but when I tasted it, it was perfect.

    So I deliberately set out to do it to the whole pan. Boiled it dry, then burned it through. It's absolutely fantastic.

    There seems to be a thing for adding dark chocolate to chili.

    Haven't tried it myself yet.

    If you want a decent chilli, search for Jamie Oliver's winter chilli recipe with brisket beef and belly pork. Just fantastic.

    Needs several hours of slow cooking but well worth it if you're patient.

    Its very good.
    The longer the better, the Italians cook a meat sauce for 12 hours+ on a very low heat.

    Once burnt, isn't it cancerous?

    Are you sure you haven't invented something akin to marmite?

    The missus did something like that with a bolognaise in a Le Creuset, but only partially.
    Tasted foul, she now has strict instructions never to do it again.

    Maybe its your lack of taste, what did the rest of the family think?
