Tamarind Chipotle Ribs and the first local corn


Schwing! 🙂

I was worried on Friday when my farmer friend David told me that he likely wouldn’t have corn for 2 weeks yet. Thankfully the Mayhew’s  brought some to the Combermere market on Saturday.  The variety is called Welcome and it’s a welcome treat after a long wait but truthfully, it was a little young.  Another week until the sugar really develops. image I used an old Chefs School recipe for the ribs that I havent made in ages. I marinated the ribs overnight in lime juice, garlic and chilli flakes. image I slow roasted the ribs for a couple of hours in a covered pan then grilled them, basting with a tamarind chipotle sauce I made. image The one snag was that the recipe called for chipotle in adobo sauce and i didnt bother to check the cupboard because I always have them on hand. I didn’t.  I did have a bag of dried chipotles from the last rime I went to Mi Tienda Latina in Kitchener so I decided to make my own. image I soaked the chillies in  boiling water to soften then blended a few with a jar of my tomato sauce. I simmered the remaining chillies in the sauce along with  vinegar, onions and garlic for a couple of hours then blended it all.  I added a little of my maple syrup to balance out the flavour.  I ended up getting almost a litre of it and I don’t think I’ll ever buy the canned ones again. image Good eating!
