Chili pepper and ethical chocolate
Valentine´s day tomorrow, that is rather new for people in Iceland to celebrate that day. I don´t. I am such a party pooper, I just think about the marketing around all this. I am guessing many will buy chocolate for their sweethearts. If ever, this is the day to splurge on a good chocolate, then I mean ethical good. Here is a good article about ethical chocolate. Read it before you go to the store to buy some chocolate.
The dry spices you get in the store are so tasteless, I get more taste from chewing on a newspaper. We have a really good one, grown here in Iceland, it´s hot, but not too hot. I dry it and put it in a mortel and work it until it becomes powder.
I made an Indian food the other day using only fresh garlic, ginger and my chili pepper and a little bit of turmeric. IT was so good and good taste and little bit spicy.
