BURNT TASTE IN CHILE
Hi Chef James,
I made a pot of chili and it started to burn. I dumped all of the chili into a fresh pot without the burnt part. Is there anything, spice or whatever, that I can add to get rid of the slight burnt taste/smell?, rather that starting over?
here is no way to get rid of the burned taste. Throw it away and start over.
Next time if you notice food starting to burn - Do Not Stir - Remove the pot immediately from the stove and put the bottom of the pan into a sink full of cold water to stop the cooking.
Using a ladle or cup, remove the top 3/4 of it from the pot and place in a new pan. Do not pour it, as this will mix some of the burnt part as you pour. Chef James FoodReference.com
