The Best Pepper I Have Ever Tasted.
#1
Luckily they grow it here near to where I am in Sihanoukville.

Kampot pepper, it has a unique strong taste and delicious.

I managed to buy a 100 grams in the market for a dollar 50 cents.

If possible buy some. It is expensive but maybe for 25 grams it will be cheap enough.

At first glance I though this was about a prepper rather than a condiment <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/ohmy.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':o' /> <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':lol:' />

It wouldn't surprise me that Pete had bought a Prepper for $1.50 <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/yes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':yes:' /> <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/laugh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':lol:' />
Hopefully the S won't HTF and I pray every day that it won't. It would not be fun.

Hit the wrong button on the previous post.



Limey,

Your comments about the peppers cost, reminded me about the story I have heard often repeated about a well heeled local farmer where my wife grew up. The time frame is 1950's to place the monetary value into proper perspective.



The farmer got caught dove hunting over a baited field, and went before Judge Ben C. Dawkins, who had a tough reputation as a Federal Jurist. Judge Dawkins fined the Farmer $500 (Remember early 1950's time frame).



Said farmer tells Judge Dawkins: Awe Judge, $500 an't nottin' but a little chicken scratch, I've got that rite here in miah hip pocket! Judge Dawkins continued: And six months in jail, before hammering the gavel down.



Then Judge Dawkins asked, You got six months in your hip pocket, son?





The peppers are probably cheaper in the country, but most of us should be able to manage 25 grams without taking out a loan.





Having never tasted the peppers myself, but since you are a world traveler, how would you compare the Kampot Peppers to the Cayenne & Jalapeno Peppers here in the US.

I tried to beat the Cambodian down to a dollar Grizz, but he would not drop the price.

As I was leaving he said, "Where you come from?"

I said "Canada." <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/tongue.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Tongue' />



Jimbo, the taste is nothing like those peppers you mentioned.

This pepper is not something that takes the breath away, but sharp and strong with a delicious taste.

Most of it is sold to France, and the french in my opinion really know what is good food.



As a railroad tramp of culinary fine taste, we don't all live of Rama noodles and Cisco red wine, I recommend this pepper.

Pity it is so expensive though . . .

At one time this pepper was more expensive than gold! AOC.

But then they started growing more of it and the price went down.

The problem for the Cambodians is that they freely give out working visas - one foreigner is selling craft jewellery on the beach.

Which is not the case in Thailand where they try and keep every enterprise in their control.

For instance, the gym I go to has recently banned food and drink being taken into the gym.

They want to sell their overpriced water, and body building powder at inflated prices.

All it does is create bad feeling and customers stay away.

The market will always set the price no matter what the government try to do.

The British government raised the duty on scotch so high that consumption went down and they were drawing less duty.

They had to drop the duty.

However some products such as smoked salmon maintain a high price, even though the product does not justify the price.

Sooner or later someone will come along, and sell salmon at the same price as tinned sardines.

Coca Cola should be 15 cents a bottle, but it is not because coca cola crush all other coke producers.

Pedro,

You have obviously spent too much time being a Hobo in the US and have picked up some bad habits from our American cousins...they are constantly trying to pass themselves off as Canadians ....as if our accents are the same. <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Rolleyes' />

Dave Dennis is an example, he wants to be Canadian so bad he has maple syrup deodorant. <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/yes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':yes:' />

I tried to teach him to speak Canukian, but he kept dropping in a Y'all and slipped up constantly by saying "Uh-huh" instead of "Eh?" which is always posed at a question..for example "You must be a Brit" is a statement but adding "Eh?" makes it an inquiry where as the proper grammar would be "I suspect you are British. Am I correct?" Dave also pronounces the word Boat as BOW-ATT

So when you are posing as a Canadian you should never ask for Treacle for your pancakes, it is always PURE Maple Syrop not synthetic mind you, but pure!!

Never refer to Americans as US Nationals, US citizens or Americans but as Yanks, north or south they are all yanks. Being a son of the confederacy, Dave would never never never be able to have that descriptor to leave his tightly clenched lips.

The border is no longer referred to as the US Border any more, it is the Trump Line. (Canoeists will see the Canadian humour in that)

I like Americans and I think they are the most hospitable people I have met (The Donald's foreign policy notwithstanding) but this blatant impersonating Canadians has to stop...you are not fooling anyone. Even as a Brit your accent would be scrutinized and you would have to produce your Shakespearean Stage Actor's Guild Membership card as they are the only Canadians who speak like Brits...excepting the odd University Professor.

Also when questioned you would have to answer what is Poutine? and you cannot hesitate, nor can you answer "That Russian Guy"



Be warned...we are on the lookout for STOLEN CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP worldwide. <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/cool.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='B)' />

I believe that Indians used to make maple sugar - a solid rather than a liquid?
