Chile and fruit... Fri, 08/3/07 9:30 PM (permalink)
Crazy me - I was playing with my food again today and came up with an interesting combo. Not sure whether this should be on Chili, Mexican or Desserts but here goes =

I had these old strawberries, getting mushy, so I added a few soon-to-be-mushy blueberries and - mushed them up. Then I got this idea from some jam I recently bought - and actually put in a bit of chopped green chile. Wow! That popped!

It was sweet and spicy together. I added a bit of sweetener (although chile is actually a tad sweet itself)- even better - and then a few old apricots - better still!!!

I am imagining serving this compote on vanilla ice cream or pound cake, or cottage cheese or yoghurt. I am also thinking of adding a few drops of alcohol, but I can't decide between rum, tequila or what.

I am also imagining the chile with other very ripe fruits: melon? peaches? cherries? grapes/raisins?
