The arrival of the Foodie Penpal parcel always creates great excitement here and this month’s parcel from John was no exception. As you can see, my girls couldn’t wait until I’d taken the pictures before tasting the Scotch Bonnet sauce. They loved it but it was far too hot for me. We then used it to pep up a Beef Chilli which was a great success – lots of flavour but not so hot.
The Sumac and Nigella seeds are earmarked for some curries in the next few weeks.The seaweed made a lovely change in my lunch box and sparked a lot of interest in the staff room.
I’m still wondering how best to use the black pudding and chorizo and you can never have to much vanilla.
A great parcel – thanks John.
