I didn't believe it before!

I didn’t believe it before!

So, I discovered that pepper really DOES make you sneeze!

Cooking up a large batch of chicken and sweetcorn soup as the majority of the family are all bunged up (again!), and was adding the pepper, just a tad too much on my spoon so I sprinkled it back in the pepper packet, caught a whiff of it and, oh my! Sneeze City!!!

And in case anyone would like it, here’s the recipe from  my Mother Dearest!

Chicken and Sweetcorn soup (kinda Chinese style, but not quite… if you know what I mean!)

1 whole chicken – skinned and jointed

Large pan with plenty of water

Tin of sweetcorn

Salt to taste

White pepper

Tomato ketchup


2 tbsp white vinegar

1 tbsp corn flour

1) Put chicken in a large pan with plenty of salted water. Allow to boil, then simmer gently for 1 hour.

2) Drain chicken, keeping stock ( important, very important!!! I managed to drain all mine away before, so we had boiled chicken… no soup!)

3) De bone and shred chicken. Put the chicken back into the large pan along with the stock.

4) Add drained sweetcorn

5) Add sprinkle of white pepper, dash of Tabasco, and a little squirt of tomato ketchup.

6) Mix the white vinegar and corn flour in a mug, then add to the soup.

7) Simmer on a low heat for 20 minutes until thoroughly warmed through.

Enjoy with Garlic Bread, and if you like an extra kick, in a bowl, cut some green chilli into little circles, add some diced red or white onion and top up with white vinegar. add these to your own serving of soup, to taste.
