And the finished product with a celery, parsley, basil salad with a black pepper/caramel drizzle.
Have to admit, we ate the ends while I was finishing dinner. It is so good, smooth, creamy, extremely rich. We decided on just 1 slice each for our actual meal after eating the ends. 6 more slices have been vacu-packed in packages of 2 each and are in the freezer firming up before final bagging. It was melting at room temp. Craig put his finger on 1 slice and it really started to melt.
Next time, if there is one, I'll use white pepper. One site said not to use it because they felt it gave a chemical aftertaste but I'm not sure I like seeing it in there, although it doesn't show up as much in regular lighting versus the camera flash.
