Ming sent us a delicious red chili jelly. As I neared the end of the tiny jar, I tried to recreate it, which ended a disaster as jelly, but it had become an indispensable chili sauce at Chez Nakagawa. As we near the end of that concoction, how do I recreate something that was supposed to be something else? I tried to remember what I used in the ingredients, but Ben had a bumper year of chili last year, (the only thing we grew amidst a field of weeds,) so I got a tad too eager.
It turned in to half a dozen jars of concoction with four varieties of chili that may require a pipette to apply. We may have to bequeath some to a couple of unsuspecting Nelson youth.
