Homemade Harissa makes for a happy husband
What job/task/activity do you do that you do for your husband because it makes him happy?
Mine is making Harissa.
I don't like making it, it makes my eyes hurt, I start to cough and even though I wear gloves I can still taste chilli on my hands. And, I do not like hot chillies and I don't eat Harissa. I can't even eat what I make.
However, dear husband loves my homemade Harissa so I make it for him and it makes him happy.
I think one of the problems with modern marriages is that many wives no longer do special things for their husbands just to make them happy. Sadly, we live in a very selfish world where we no longer think its important to "think" of others, in particular our spouses.
The recipe I used was similar to this one, however I used many more chillies than the recipe recommends: http://www.coffeeandcrumpets.com/harissaa-most-versatile-hot-sauce/
And like any cooking - the dishes need to be done, but at least with Harissa, there isn't very much to wash.
I do love the red colours when completed. Its very Christmasy.
