Roasted Capsicum Sauce
« on: November 16, 2014, 10:49:54 pm »
A dear friend sent me a bottle of Toscana Roasted Capsicum Finishing Vinegar.  It was delicious when mixed with EVOO and used as a dressing.  I looked at the ingredients on the label and thought,  I can make that in the Thermi!!
I made it using the ingredients as a guide.  The result was nothing like the original,  but equally delicious.  This is more like Plum sauce or sweet Chilli Sauce.
It would make an excellent Xmas gift.
This recipe makes about 600 MLs.

Ingredients.
500g of roasted and peeled red Capsicums. (Roast under grilled in oven  or over gas flame,  pop into plastic or paper bag to steam and then remove all chared skin. )
220 g raw sugar.
150 g of BOTH Balsamic and Apple vinegar
1 teaspoon of whole cloves
1 teaspoon of whole black pepper corns
3 bay leaves.  I used fresh ones but dried would be ok
1 teaspoon of salt

Method
Place all ingredients into TMX bowl , cook 30 mins/ 100o/speed 2
When cooked, remove bay leaves
Mix by slowly turning the speed to 10 for 20 seconds.
Using a spatula, scoop some of the sauce out and test for salt and the mixture should be smooth and thick.
If not , mix for another 10 seconds on 100.

Notes
Although I thought I would use this to mix as a dressing , I think it could be poured hot over Philly cheese as a dip.
Brushed on chicken or fish and steamed in Varoma.
Used as a flavor boost
Served with sour cream and corn fritters.

Does that mean it's still a work in progress Chookie?

Chookie, I have just finished making this sauce, it's still hot but I have licked the measuring cup. Yummy, sweet and spicey.  Thanks for another fantastic Chookie recipe. X
One for us and one to give away.

Bedlam. Looks good.  Very sensible to put it in those jars.  I put it in a tall oil bottle and when it cooled it set.  I had to putti the microwave to be able to pour it out of the small top of the bottle.

My DH says this reminds him of Fathers Favourite, we both love it. I had some on scrambled eggs for breaky..
I gave my son the glass bottle, I like the decor squeezy ones, you can get arty fatty with the nozzle if you like.  Not so easy to sterilise though. I keep my vanilla paste in one too, no need to use a spoon. I did mention to DD's to be sure you have the right one when baking,lol.
