Sweet and hot. It kicks me off my feet!
It is a sauce, but it has the savor of a jam.
I keep a jar in my house and every day I feel the need to open it and have a bite…just to remind me how much I like it!!!
It is something that hardly ever occurs to me and I don’t even like spicy-hot stuff!
Every time I taste it a new way of using it comes to mind.
Why not fry some traditional country sausage with big pieces of quince, or leeks, or mushrooms…
After cooking them for some time, I shall add one tablespoon of “sweet & hot Florina peppers” and stir it while cooking for a few minutes.
It can be delicious next to some rice, French fries, or omelet.
I can grate some feta cheese and let it melt inside, it would be perfect with wine for cold winter evenings.
Alternatively, I can brush the sausages with some “sweet & hot Florina peppers” and grill them in a pan until they crisp and caramelize.
A platter of ripened yellow cheeses would be a splendid match for this dish.
I can make a quick dip for nachos with feta cheese and “sweet & hot Florina peppers”.
Ideal for watching a movie by the fireplace!
Another amazing idea is to make small meatballs. I‘ll add some “sweet & hot Florina peppers” in minced meat, maybe a little garlic, onion,
Then I‘ll shape them small and fry them. I may serve them like that during a picnic, or put them in a tomato sauce with French fries on the
side, what a feast!
The rest of the jar will serve as a dip for the French fries in the middle of the table. Mm!
Ah! What if I marinate the chicken wings with “sweet & hot peppers” mixed with some ketchup?
Perfect! I can grill them for the pot-luck dinner party we‘re invited to on Saturday… Yippee!
With prosciutto, smoked ham, grilled beef steak, fried cheese, shrimp saganaki…
O, I can’t help it, I ‘m drooling. I’m going to eat something…
This cunning jam-sauce has set me on fire!
I’d better get going…
