I did manage to find some larger dried chilis at the gourmet shop, but I’m wanting something skinny and small, as a garnish to a cocktail I want to submit.They are everywhere, here in Texas. Many different kinds, too. Ask Rocklobster.
Down this way, there are plenty of Mexican groceries. you can pick up all sorts of dried chiles: ancho, guajillo, chilpotle, pasilla, etc. There´s a store about 10 minutes away from Madeira!…and what is it about dried whole chilies? I can’t find any at any of the easy-to-get-to shops!
Yeah, that’s the problem, though…that’s not an “easy-to-get-to” shop for me, especially since I’m working during the day and trying to get a jump on my Thanksgiving cooking.There´s a store about 10 minutes away from Madeira!
I will almost certainly use ground chilis, but, I'll grind them myself from dried chilis. Certainly that has to be allowed??? Of course, my problem will be to get my butt in gear, and make something to enter.
