Trying new ingredients/recipes
OK, I give up! I've searched but can't find this line and I know it was around here at one time! Moderators, do your thing and move me if you need to!
When was the last time you tried something truly new to you and how did it turn out?
I saw horseradish root in the grocery store, and thought, what the heck? I love horseradish so bought it.
I found it difficult to use, dirty, and rather than that hot, nasal passage clearing effect I so love, it was more bitter. I grated it into a slaw (and I've used prepared from the store in slaws often) and it just didn't do much for me. I'm back to Bucky Badger (a local brand) and Inglehoff (a brand of condiments I like for the size of the jar since I'm usually buying for two and don't want jars of condiments moving into my fridge for all eternity!).
Now it probably wasn't as fresh as it could have been. But still, won't try it again unless someone offers me some from their garden (a lot of people grow it here, just not any of my friends right now).
What have you tried lately and how was your success.
