I do love spotting a 10p bargain! When I saw some Bird's Eye chillies reduced I snapped them up. Each wee pack had 11 so that it cost 30p for 33 chillies.
I sliced them longways and spread them out on kitchen paper. They sat on my conservatory window for a week. They were dry but didn't crumble between my fingers.
So I spread them on a baking tray and popped them in the bottom of the oven as it was cooling down after baking potatoes.
A quick pound with my mortar and pestle.
And then they went into a wee jar (recycled from a previous 10p bargain marinade)
They're a wee bit redder than the Schwartz ones but boy do they pack a punch! A little goes a long way :-)
