Recently I bought a small jar of a spice blend called “burgundy pepper.” Sounded interesting on the store shelf, and smelled great when I opened it, but it turns out it’s extremely salty. This seems to be a common problem with store-bought spice blends.
Fortunately the maker was kind enough to list all the ingredients (sure enough, salt is the first one :rolleyes:), so I’d like to replicate it at home without all the salt.
Unfortunately for me one of the ingredients is “natural burgundy wine flavor.” How can I obtain this flavor? Can I gently boil some burgundy in a pan (or just slowly evaporate it at a lower temperature) until it dries, then grind the residue into powder?
