AFRICAN BERBERE PASTE
Roast the Berbere spices in a hot, dry pan for one minute, then process to a paste with the onion, garlic, salt and wine. Stir in the Paprika, Cayenne Pepper and cold water. Cook over low-moderate heat, stirring constantly, for 15-20 minutes, until the onion is cooked – taste and add more salt or Cayenne to your liking. When cool, transfer paste to a screw-top jar and cover with a film of oil. This will keep in the refrigerator for up to six months. Add a tablespoon or more to stews and casseroles for a hearty, spicy flavour. (Has more oomph than tomato paste!) .
