Chili Powder- August 2nd Update

Friends for Jeff Spiegelman,

Hello everyone and welcome back. I hope you enjoyed the fair.

-The news you have all been waiting for!!!!! My volume II cookbooks are being printed this week and (hopefully) will be available by the time of next week’s update.

-Tomorrow night at 7 p.m. is the Kenton Town Council Meeting.

-On Tuesday morning, I am part of a panel for the Innovative Initiative group.

-On Wednesday, I am attending another USDA Grant ceremony in Smyrna. At 7:30 p.m. is the Townsend Town Council meeting.

-Saturday is Comic Con in Dover! Jenn, Saul, and I are still debating if we want to go in costume.

-Many of my constituents are concerned about Blackbird Forrest Rd. Just as a heads-up, I have been told by DelDOT that the road is set to be redone starting later this month from Vandyke Greenspring Rd. north to Route 13. I know it is BADLY needed and I will continue to monitor the situation. Please email or call me with any concerns.


-Many constituents have contacted me asking about HB50 now that the governor has vetoed it. We will be discussing that situation when we are back in session in January. If you would like to talk about it before then, my phone and email box are always open.


-My next round of constituent meetings are still being planned out. Stay tuned.


Many of you know that I use spicy chili powder in a lot of my recipes. Here is a great go-to example that I really like:

-Equal numbers poblano and long hot peppers

Rip the stems off but leave the seeds in the peppers. Smoke with a lighter and fruitier wood. I use a combination of cherry, grape, and pecan wood. Turn the peppers every 30-45 minutes until they begin to get crispy. Grind in a spice grinder. Store in an airtight container with a drying packet to keep it fresh.

— Thanks.
