I've never done this or ever put cling film in the oven (it might survive fine but sciencelad might be able to tell us if it'll be leeching any worrying chemicals) but if you seal anything while cooking it, what you're doing is keeping in all of the water that would usually have been evaporated, effectively steaming at the same time as roasting, which will prevent them from drying out or the honey getting too candied, both which would lead to a jelly/sticky texture.

Most restaurants have what we call a combi oven, which can basically pump steam into your oven while roasting, and is exactly how I'd make carrots like this, so I suppose that all makes sense.

So far in my home made hot sauce experiments, the key seems to be adding liberal quantities of MSG and a little chipotle. Provided the rest of the ingredients don't include anything that clashes horribly with that or each other, it'll be delicious.

My friends think I'm a freak because I very rarely eat Subway or Nando's; as far I can tell it's just, not especially good quality, grilled chicken that has been marinated in peri-peri sauce. Am I missing something here?

I'd say Linda McCartney burgers edge Iceland burgers; the last time I went to a barbecue they only had cheap meat burgers so the Linda McCartney ones were actually nicer to eat. Not burgers, but I got a couple of Oumph! products yesterday so I'll see what they're like.

For whatever reason most other dried soya mince I've tried ends up too chewy and rubbery.

I used to think it was Cadbury Roses, but I had some lately and they've greatly reduced the variety and quality of chocolates available. I've heard Cadbury have also done the same with Miniature Heroes; taking out Crunchie, Picnic, Time Out and Caramel with a nut in it (can't remember the proper name for this).

13078 Slow Cooker Curry
What am I doing wrong, lads? Every slow cooker curry I make turns out more like a watery broth; there's absolutely no thickness to the sauce and it just doesn't... taste like a curry. It has all the flavours but it doesn't quite mesh right.

My process is:
Fry chicken pieces with onions, carrots, and broccoli until browned off.
Put in slow cooker with box of passata, 4 or 5 heaped tablespoons of madras curry powder, and a whole chilli. Sprinkle Oxo cube in too.
Give it a mix, put the lid on, low for 8 hours or high for 6.

Add chopped coriander, leave for 5 mins with lid off, serve.

Every time, as I say, it's just far, far too watery. The most recent batch I froze individual portions of just have no sauce at all. What do?

Thanks lads.

They could be. Curries are a countable noun but have no minimum mass requirement whereas a curry is a countable noun so you could divide a small amount of one curry into a very large number of curries and outnumber the amount of other curries, making your own curries the majority of what all curries are.
Probably more effort than it's worth.

You need to let shit reduce before you get all that good shit sticking to your chickens/lambs.

At the very least, when you first start, try to let it reduce (leave the top open on medium to high flame, and then use your pressure/slow cooker wizardry.

13073 Hot sauces and chili jams
Any of you lads had any experience with making your own hot sauce or chili jams? If not, do you have any favourites?

I'm about to harvest my chili plant and retire it for the winter. I'll probably cook up a few batches and bottle them for the next couple of months.

My proposed mix is as follows:

- 3 x Scotch bonnet
- 3 x jalapeno (grilled)
- 1 x bell pepper (roasted)
- Handful of roasted plum tomatoes
- Half an onion (grilled)
- Some garlic
- Some ginger
- A few carrots (roasted)
- Salt

12x random chilli pepper I was sent. Look like Trinidad Scorpions but it's hard to be sure.
Half a mug of dried sichuan peppers
2x Garlic cloves
Roasted on a low temperature for a bit then took the sichuan peppers out when they started to smoke. Turned up the temperature and continued roasting until the chillies started to blacken a little.
.5 cup light soy sauce
1x cup of rice vinegar
1.5 shots of lime juice
1x teaspoon of cayenne pepper
.5 test tube of dried chipotle
1x teaspoon salt
1x tablespoon MSG
Peeled the now soft garlic & removed the chilli pepper stalks, blended all the ingredients together as homogeneously as possible. Brought to a boil then simmered for the remainder of 30 minutes while fairly constantly stirring.

It's cooling now. I can see subsidence is a problem as it keeps separating so will need shaking/stirring before serving but it's really delicious.

13064 Unusual ingredient thread
I have a smoked garlic bulb from my local greengrocers' and would like some ideas of what to do with it. I know that only a carpet-bagger needs a quick response but I'd quite like to cook with it tonight if anyone has some immediate ideas.

I also thought this could be a good thread for when we find ourselves in possession of a random ingredient and need cheflad the userbase to give us some pointers.

If it's hot-smoked, use it anywhere you'd use roasted garlic.

If it's cold-smoked, there's a risk that cooking will dull the smoky notes, but it'll add an extra dimension to an aioli or mayo, and you'll probably get away with it in a tomato sauce for pasta. That said, worst case scenario is you kill the smoke and end up with the same taste as unsmoked garlic.

I think the greengrocers' didn't smoke it for long enough. It was clearly cold-smoked as it wasn't softened or browned on the inside, and after some gentle cooking the smoky aroma wasn't very noticable at all. In the end I made a sort of Japanese omelette (I think they call it tamagoyaki) with a little sesame oil and spring onion greens to go with a salmon dish of mine. It was very nice and all but I don't think the fact that the garlic was smoked did much.

Actual hot-smoked garlic like in my earlier pic does look delicious though, I'd love to have that on toast.

Is there such a thing as a website or app that generates dish ideas based on ingredients that you enter?

Which is to say, you can tell it what you currently have in your kitchen and it'll pop out with a recommendation (and let you know what ingredients of yours will work as a facsimile, or cross out those that are non essential, etc.).

I've tried Supercook, but there's no 'fuzziness' there. Only strictly the ingredients you have.
