Holiday Saucing 2012

chilemilioNovember 12, 2012

The time has arrived to prepare hot sauce for the holidays. We have a lot of visitors coming through this year, so I had to make it an early effort. 4 sauces came out: traditional (garlic/onions), spicy curry, super spicy, and pho spiced. Best effort to date... the only problem I see is that I'm not going to be able to wait 1+ months to hand these out to friends and family.

Happy Holidays!

Hehe.. DMF, I'll have to make sure there is enough for holiday gifts first

Thanks Josh. I also love Pho. I thought it'd be interesting to experiment by adding spices I use in making pho. Mainly cardamom, fennel, star anise, and coriander seeds. Forgot to add cinnamon, but it may have been for the best. Came out very interesting.. I think it gave it a beefy-ness. My wife thinks its more aromatic than the others (maybe because of the cardamom?).

No problemo. I like lemon grass, but don't use it in my pho. Although, I've seen some vietnamese soups with it, like a 'bun bo hue' (spicy soup from Hue). I did put dried lemon grass in the spicy curry one, but didn't taste it much, ended up more indian-like than thai.. not sure what I put too much of. need to keep experimenting.
