Bitter Chili

Yes, hard lesson learned. :( A lot of the bitterness has dissipated, but enough remains to make the chili less enjoyable than had I used one of those other beers!

Bitter Chili

Thank you for the suggestions. After reading the replies here, I added more sweetener (first some brown sugar and then some honey) and that helped some - I didn't want it too sweet. I also tried adding baking soda and I *think* that worked a little, but then I added more tomatoes and I think that and the sweetener worked best. I continued to simmer for a couple more hours and the bitterness wasn't so intense, but it's still there. So sad about this chili because it looked so good! My first chili fail in 20+ years of cooking.

Bitter Chili

I added a whole bottle of IPA to my chili without tasting it first and now it is way too bitter (I did taste the IPA after I added most of the bottle - it was gross, I should have known!). Is there any way to save this chili? I've made probably 2-3 quarts of it. Help!!

Whole Foods Nashua??

The Peterborough-based shop is Nature's Green Grocer and the most recent news was that they were hoping to open early summer. They have an extensive vitamins/supplements/etc/beauty care products section. The groceries are not plentiful - certainly not like Whole Foods or any other chain, but more than what you'd expect and what they do sell is good and pretty much on par price-wise with foods from other natural food shops. We get all of our meat from there and they do have some fresh seafood. They also have the de rigueur GF-CF-sometimes nut-free products there as well and if they don't have it, they will try to order it in for you. I'd think Peterborough is much closer to Nashua than Bedford, MA!

Chilaquiles?

I'm going to try to make easy chilaquiles at home - I have 1 10 oz can of red enchilada sauce and 1 10 oz can of green enchilada sauce. Can I mix them together to make some sort of passable chilaquiles?

The Elm--Great Indian food in Milford NH

I think they are the same duo (?) that used to operate Bursey's over in Wilton before it went belly up. I really liked the tikka masala and the pizza was great too. I hope they do well.
