New Year's Champaign Hotdogs and Wings campaign...
And it was awesome! Didn't get pics of the end though... the Champers kinda got in the way! :doh::becky: Was a great kick off to 2012 though. Here's what I do have to show: :thumb:

Started off by prepping and seasoning some wings:

I did them up in a seasoned yogurt and let them sit overnight (seasoned with some of my rub and maggi seasoning):

Wrapped a couple franks in bacon.

Then I made a little sweet pepper, onion & mushroom topping for the hot dogs.

Then fried up some wings:

then fried up the sausages:

And that there is all I have of that... *hic* :heh: Sorry to leave you all high and dry like that but just picture a fresh hot dog bun with a fried bacon wrapped sausage, a slice of colby cheese topped with the pepper "relish" and K&M! It was ridicously awesome! However since I didn't have pics of the end result I will share the sauce recipe with you to make up for it a bit... :becky: It's a sauce I've been making for a long time. It's a tamarind sauce. I get fresh tamarind out here but I'm sure you can find "blocks" of it in your Asian store. Ok here goes... (btw I used this on the wings)

Start off with the tamarind:

Then you saute an onion, garlic & a bit of cumin in some butter...

Then you add some hot water and the tamarind with some pepper flakes & Brown sugar to taste and simmer down for about 20 mins til the tamarind starts to break down then salt to taste... (the tamarind is usually pretty tart so you need to balance that with the sugar... I used about 1/2 cup for this batch.)

Once its done run it through a strainer pressing as much of the tamarind through as you can then I usually hit it with an immersion stick blender and you end up with this:

Its awesome stuff! Well I had a great new years, hope you all did as well! I wish peace & love, health and prosperity to each and every one of you for 2012! God Bless!

It's really good! Its not really a fruit you eat as is. It can be quite tart but it's FULL of flavor! We usually mix it with brown sugar and roll them into little balls out here! A great little treat for the sweet tooth.

Just got of the hook with Mom.....she said I can get it but it's a bit harder than I suspected.
Normally I go to a Oriental store for "different" kind of Phruits,veggies etc....but Mom said that maybe they don't sell tamarind in these shops.
She said to look out for Surinam shops (which we don't have in Utrecht) but there's a Hindustani guy on saturday standingon the market who sells them.

Mom told that she has some in the Phreezer that she got out of Surinam....while typing she called and asked me:how much do you need?:becky::thumb:
Walking over to Mom to see what it is.

BTW...I only had tamarind syrup/lemonade I think,it's populair in Surinam.

Phubar 01-02-2012 11:46 AM

I got a small batch which I can work with.
They were picked in a Surinam garden from a Phriend of a Phriend,transported by plane de-shelled and I just got them out of my Mom's Phreezer.
They look like this but with that net thingy still on there...

Mom said that I should save the can make syrup/lemonade out of it and you can reuse the seeds a long time.

Awesome Phu!!! It's awesome on chicken! Let me know how it works out... Sent a PM!

Phubar 01-03-2012 10:54 AM

Thanks for the PM Brother!
Now that I look at the pics again I see I have somewhat the same amount of tamarind.
Is there a sour Phlavour in there as well?
If not I'm adding some lime juice or something else.....I like sour.:becky:
