    Unusual Chocolate

    Some of you may know that it was Father's Day in the UK last Sunday (15/06/08).

    We don't make a point of celebrating these "special" days but the Jezzarettes always buy us a token present which is fine by us. This year they managed to find a very unusual bar of chocolate for me to try which is made from, white chocolate, crushed peppers and lemon juice. I wasn't quite sure about the concoction and took a little chunk with trepidation......but boy was it delicious <img src=/S/yum.gif border=0 alt=yum width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/yum.gif border=0 alt=yum width=15 height=15>

    If you get the chance you must try some

    Did the girls get this off the website - or do shops stock these?

    Presumably one could make one's own specialty chocolate by buying slabs of (cheap) milk chocolate (as in Bulk Barn stores here in sunny Toronto) and melting them before adding, say, pureed ginger, or raisins etc.

    Chris,
    I think speciality chocolate requires special chocolate. That is with my <img src=/S/flags/Switzerland.gif border=0 alt=Switzerland width=18 height=18> hat on!

    Re: Unusual Chocolate

    There is a trick to the "snap" of a chocolate bar that could be difficult to recreate from a pot of goo and a bunch of web search results... but it might make a good spread for a crepe or other thin starchy item.

    True.
    OTOH I'm thinking that a couple of pounds of 47c chocolate from Bulk barn might make me a nice batch of pureed-ginger-and-raisin for my night-time snacks.

    I am, of course, going to try it, in the interest of pure research.

    Nah.
    You just gottta make the bar long enough. It'll snap!

    >but it might make a good spread for a crepe or other thin starchy item.
    I tried six years ago coating partially inflated balloons with molten chocolate to make my own Easter eggs.
    What they don't tell you on the web is that the balloons burst while the chocolate is still molten.
    I'm quite enjoying my new apartment .....

    I have a zillion firm plastic sheets that were supposed to be backing sheets for the new bookcases. I can see me making a grid of them, strips of plastic about an inch high, and using that as a mold to make one-inch square snappable blocks.
