Friday Night Chili is brought to you this week with an abundance of duck fat.

Keep it simple:

Love thy onions with a star anise and lots of animal fat until they’re smoogie
Add some crushed garlic

Meanwhile, in a different pan, brown that beef then add wine and reduce

Add tomato paste to your onion mush
When it’s brick red, add some tin toms

When your onion-tomato goob has fallen into a rough sauce, add the beef

Then add a few cups of stock and let that baby simmer.

You can add beans, but I don’t because beans, beans they’re a musical fruit.

Powdered Sugar Made at Home

Don’t you go buying powdered sugar. Stick it to the man and make it yourself.

Here is how:

1cup and a half of plain granulated sugah

1tablespoon of corn starch

 

Stick that mix in a blender until it looks like powdered sugar. For me and my big-arse blender, that was under a minute. Let the dust settle and you will be well on your way to freedom. Freedom from people charging crazy prices for something so simple ( see vanilla extract ) makes me feel alive.
