Topic: chili sauce - a cooking inquiry
Subject: Some fun facts


I found some info on chili sauce you may find interesting.

It seems British sailors brought back from Malaysian a spicy fish sauce called Ke-tsiap. It appears they added tomatoes, spices, sugar, vinegar etc. and voila = Ketchup was born around 1800s.

The British already had mushroom ketchup for sandwiches thus this became tomato ketchup. Now if you add more cayenne, onions, & garlic, you had tomato Chilli sauce. It appears we have been spelling it incorrectly for sometime.

The British took both to the US where locate farmers in the south started to bottle their own variations eg green chilli sauce and today's hot sauce with more and more hot chilies in them. To the North, they "bland" it down, removing most of the heat.

Now according to the researcher - the word Ketchup was used in the US by Heinz. Del Monte referred to it as catsup, but, only east of Mississippi. West of it it is all Ketchup except in Iowa where it is known as Tomato Cornchops. Not sure if this is true, sounds far fetched to me. I had always believed ketchup was Canadian pronounciation and catsup was America. You, my American friends, can confirm or deny this theory.

You can't have ninja pirates! That goes against the ages old argument of which is cooler ninja or pirates? If you can have ninja pirates then the answer would become - ninja pirates of course and no one would debate it.

That is certainly more along the Thai Chili sauce idea but still good to know. Funny too, since I am making pork tonight.

Moving back to chili sauce now, which doesn't really have much to do with chili con carne. Maybe I'll make a ribs and chili con carne thread later.

I make chili (the stew/soup) or chili con carne all the time and I consider myself a master of that dish. It is the sauce that I am interested in.

Subject: chili sauce - a cooking inquiry


I realize this has nothing to do with gaming or dice or D&D. So be it! Call me a rebel!

Pardon this strange line of inquiry, but I have a question for you and I want to poll as many people as I can. The question is:

What do you think a chili sauce is?

This started because I am looking at making chili sauce. To me, a chili sauce is a tomato based sauce that is somewhere between ketchup and chutney. Thicker and chunky than ketchup but not the spiciness of a chutney - Very similar to a relish. However in perusing periodicals in my quest for a recipe, I have found that most chili sauces do not have chilies in them. Usually they are a combination of tomatoes, onions, green peppers and red peppers, but not chilies. Yes, peppers are a member of the chili family but a distant cousin at best. This has lead me to wonder about the history of chili sauce, and how it came to be? Was it an India based chutney that was tamed down by English settlers? Or a Mexican sauce that lost its potency as it migrated northward? To the computer and Google I went but came up with little useful information. What can I say, I'm not Alton Brown. But I wonder if what I think a chili sauce is might not be what others do.

So readers. when I say Chili sauce - what do you envision? One step away from ketchup or something a bit more fiery?

Subject: New knows


It was pointed out to me that since the game was on hiatus for awhile that no one might realize the significance of the man with the strongbox running from the Mining Guild.

So I rolled a Alertness+Intelligence for all three watchers (considering his head is turned away and blocked by strongbox). Sam is the only party member to realize that the runner is Chad Sloat - the mining guild rep you brought to this planet so he could file the ballots for a Mining Guild election. Why he is running and why they are calling him a thief, you do not know.

Well...

Wyatt, Sam and Wolf do not know Willow (or jimmy) is in Emmett's Bar

Andrew does know that Darla is the saloonmistress of Emmett Bar but doesn't even know who Willow is.

Sheriff Arness does not know Jimmy and Willow are associated with Wyatt and the crew.

Willow and Jimmy do not know that the sheriff is in a pissy mood and would really like to kill someone right now.

Darla doesn't know how to aim a shotgun.
