Have you ever tasted anything you thought would be sweet – but it had never ripened? Did you keep tasting it, to see if you could find some sweetness there?
“Mom, I have a sour feeling,” said the little boy in Luna Cafe. He’d just had a swig of Orangina. He shivered, with an unfamiliar pleasure, and then took another, careful sip.
Is love an acquired taste? Does it have an acidic note too? Would sweetness without contrast be too dull a flavour?
Does the ripening happen only when you’re ready for it?
Philisophizing aside, here’s a delcious recipe for grilled chicken legs, that combines sweet, sour and spicy in the simplest way. It mixes up in less than five minutes, and doesn’t require marinating time – you just rub into onto the chicken. It cooks up moist and chewy. I guarantee this will become one of your top 5 summer recipes!
