Calabrian Bastard!

Where the hell has this little fucking beautiful jar of rouge-y love butter been hiding? Not in my pantry that's for damn sure! Lucca, in the Mission and one fine Italian market I might add, seems to have been hoarding this gem. This little paste from Calabria Italy is amazing, stunning really. It's made from that delicious and spicy little number, the aptly named Calabrian chili. Imagine that. it's reminiscent of Harissa sauce. Those crazy Moors! It's bright, fire engine-like all up in your face red color makes it All the more appetizing. Lucca has jars of whole Calabrian peppers in oil. AKA, my next purchase.

Wherever you go, there you are

WTF, Seriously?

Has it really just been just shy of a year since I last told a tale of the spice? Whatever, fuck it, I've been busy yo! Anyway, I have a small update and it's called awesome! Seriously, I found this jar of green peppercorns and I am loving them. Although they are not "hot" in the classic sense of the word they are too much for my lady's delicate taste buds. So that's saying something I suppose. These little green nubbins will add some nice flavor to pretty much whatever you're making. The Spice must flow....................Just not from our arses.
