  • scorched Chili
    Grrrrrrrrrr. I was making chili for 50 people tonite for a fire safety meeting. I left the office and told three other people in the office to keep a watch on it while I ran up to the fire hall. Amidst many assurances that they would be keepers of the chilli..... I walk back in 15 minutes later to the smell of slightly scorched chilli.
    Isnt there something that you can put in it to take the scorched taste out? i was thinking maybe a potato I heard that somewhere???
    It's not bad scorched but I know....

    first don't scrape the bottom of the pan. transfer the chili to another pan. then taste it to see if it taste scorched. i really don't know of a way to take scorched taste out of food.

    I googled, and someone mentioned getting it out of the pan fast, don't scrape the bottom, and put a piece of bread on top to draw the scorched flavor out. Said it didn't work for her, but it's worth a try.

    If you scorch gravy you can put a tablespoon of peanut butter in it and it will remove the scorched flavour without making it taste peanutty. Might work for chili as well.

    tried the bread, did not work. So before I started all over again I put in three potatoes cut in half. It took all the slightly scorched taste out.

    LOL, for a fire safety meeting -- sorry, couldn't help it!

    Not much you can do for a scorched taste except salvage what wasn't on the bottom.
