Didn't somebody already call these "artery poppers"?  Battered and fried takes that to a whole new level!

Uthristy...I just stole your recipe and going to give them a try this weekend. ;D


 In South Carolina, If it ain't fried, it ain't food.

 Hell-fire, we'll even deep fry a clump of salt down here. Add hot peppers to it and you can feed your ulcer and blood pressure at the same time.

We Yankees (hate that term as I am a Sox fan) invented frying

Have you ever seen a fried fishermans platter?

Sh!t fire I tell you what ;)

Prepare for the whine...

Those gorgeous peppers are nearly impossible to find in these parts. If I do find them, they cost about 3 euros for 4. I've found some workable African peppers for chili sauce and stuff, but damn, I miss the poppers. If anybody comes to Brussels, I'm happy to play tour guide and maybe even share the bounty of my cellar, but you must bring jalapenos.

You know I'm planning on a trip to Belgium (F1 race) and just may take you up on the offer.  Do you have any place to grow a couple plants?

Hmm... Interesting... Yeah, I could find a spot for a couple plants. I don't know how well they'd grow in Belgium at the end of August. I could try. Anyway, I'll be around at that time and I'm happy to show you around. You like beer, right?

Ha, uthirsty. I know I'm pretty safe in these parts, but I'm afraid of the day when someone comes to visit who doesn't like beer. I don't know what to do with them. "Um, I think there's a cool museum or something over there somewhere..."

As for offerings from abroad, Cholula is also acceptable. Include some Uncle Brutha's #9 and a vertical tasting of various years of Pannepot, Pannepot Reserva and Pannepot Grand Reserva becomes likely.
Title: Re: Poppers
Post by: uthristy on July 12, 2010, 12:57:47 PM
Just a heads-up, we'll be in Brussels twice (picking up & dropping off rental car) so the odds have doubled ;D

The sauces shouldn't be a problem, heck Cholula Chipotle is my house sauce and I'll look around for Uncle Brutha's #9.

I'm looking to find this beer> Viven Imperial IPA couldn't find it this past april in Antwerp but did find Troubadour Magma IPA

Would you be able to look around for a bottle of each?

ciao

Way cool.

I don't know those beers, but they sound yummy. I'll do some searching. After an initial bit of research, it looks like distribution is not widespread. Still, I'll see what I can do.

One minor rant - more freakin' Proef beers. Doesn't anybody have their own brewery anymore?
Title: Re: Poppers
Post by: uthristy on July 24, 2010, 06:50:03 PM
August,27am  we'll be leaving Amsterdam  heading  to Brussels Zuidstation(Midi)  to get our car before heading to  Spa-Francorchamps, Belgium.

So we'll be in arriving there around mid-afternoon +/-, before heading to Spa-Francorchamps.

I'll have more details later & hope my vodafone number is still valid.


Title: Re: Poppers
Post by: theoman on July 30, 2010, 06:47:50 PM
You're getting the car at Midi? Huh, interesting. That's an easy run to Moeder Lambic Fontainas from there.

Look what I found:
(http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1240/4252684/12807564/390284697.jpg)

Notice that the bottle is empty. There are 2 left. Better hurry.

Post by: uthristy on July 31, 2010, 11:59:08 AM
Wife says thats the station we get off to go pick up the car.... which means we could be walking to find the rental shop.

So how was the beer?  :D  We had the Troubadour Magma IPA on draft but wasn't able to find Viven Imperial IPA in Antwerp.

< edit to add >
I called the wife to confirm the car rental shop was at or near  Midi station, she'll get back with me later tonight.

Post by: theoman on July 31, 2010, 02:25:21 PM
How eager are you to head to Spa? I'm off work at 4pm and can be in the Midi area in 20-30 minutes. Have you been to Cantillon? If you're not in a hurry and looking to kill a little time, it's a must, and a pretty easy walk from the station.

The beer was good. Excellent, even. I'd say it compares with the better American IPA's. If you live in the USA, I'm not so sure it's worth the effort to find it. But for me, it's good to know there's something like that around when I'm jonesin' for the flavors of home (and I'm out of homebrew). Thanks for pointing me to it. I'll be sure to save ya one.
Title: Re: Poppers
Post by: uthristy on July 31, 2010, 02:48:51 PM
Details,details, it depends on how long the drive is to the Spa region. The maps says 114k. If theres time than we would love to visit Cantillon as we didn't have time in 2007, just enough  for a few beers at Delirium Café.


If you live in the USA, I'm not so sure it's worth the effort to find it. Thanks for pointing me to it. I'll be sure to save ya one.

We're in hot & sticky Fla. & the heat index right now is a cool 46.ºC   ;D  Viven is  just another hard to find beer to add to our list ;D

Forgot to say the "package" is in Amsterdam, damn short term memory loss ;D  Yep its been here for awhile and I just remembered to post.

I hope 3.8lbs is enough.

Haha! A 3.8 lb package from Amsterdam. Hm. Yeah, that should hold me over for a while. Whatever it is.

So was the package of green plant material any good :o :D 

So lastnight I sampled the IPA... not bad for a Belgian take on the classic west coast style of IPA ;D The only probelm was the flavor wasn't as strong as the damn fine aroma, nit pickin I know.

How was it? I keep wanting to go there, but never seem to make it. They have some hiking trails leaving from the place I'd like to check out as well.

These look good.  I will make some tonight.  I think I'll use queso blanco though or maybe some with that and some with cheddar.

The beers were nothing great but very drinkable, and what is it with you Belgians... you see a muddy trail going up a mountian and you just have to hike it :D

Ahh another nice sunny day in Bouillon...

Glad you enjoyed the package of peppers
cheers

Crazy, huh? 3.8 pounds of ANY green plant material is a freakin' lot. I've been putting the things in everything and just made a big pot of green chili and there's barely a dent.

Last year I made some stuffed with homemade sausage leftover from making 100 pounds of bratwurst.  We made about 50 from very fresh jalapenos, wrapped in bacon and smoked over mesquite for about 2 hours.  Probably wasn't very healthy, but then our Oktoberfest isn't a very healthy weekend to begin with.
