Today my grandmother made me a wonderful gift: chilli pepper’s tree. With about 50 chilli peppers hanging on it. I wanted to have it for a long time but could not find seeds (in my country they are rare) or plants. My granny was luckier – she found it on the market and bought it straight away knowing that I am searching for one. There was three red ones already, – others are still green. I cut one and took a small piece of it. It was very spicy. While I was eating my dinner, I created a spice recipe which I want to share with you.
Chilli spice recipe – my own invention
There are only two components: dried chilly and dried leafs of sage. Melt them together and… That’s all! I think the flavour will be fantastic and you can use it for pizza, soups, meat and so on. I haven’t tried it yet – first of all I will have to have some more chillies on my tree.
There is also another thing you can do with chilli peppers: take 2-3 of them and add them into 0.5 lit of olive oil. After 1-2 weeks you’ll get spicy olive oil. I used such oil in one Chinese restaurant with prawns soup and it was delicious!
