A MORTE DO SENHOR TABASCO

"Algumas gotas dão sabor, muitas dão vida". É isto que se lê na parte de trás das célebres garrafinhas de Tabasco. Eu não posso estar mais de acordo. Já pensei em andar com uma permanentemente no bolso. Irrita-me imenso quando vou a um restaurante e não há Tabasco. Ainda me irrita mais quando veem dizer: "Tabasco não temos, mas temos aqui um picante caseiro que é uma bomba". Mas eu não quero bombas, quero Tabasco! Vou fazer uma lista dos restaurantes que não têm Tabasco e nunca mais lá ponho os pés. A receita é, obviamente, secreta. É feito a partir de malaguetas bem sumarentas, misturado com sal da ilha de Avery (USA). Ficam a fermentar durante pelo menos três anos dentro de barris usados de Jack Daniel's, que são injectados com vinagre. O líquido é, depois, vertido nas célebres garrafinhas, chegando a atingir as 35 000 unidades Scoville, medida universal para avaliar o nível de calor produzido pelas malaguetas (uma vulgar malagueta tem 5000 unidades).  
Ninguém estranhou que Paul Mcllhenny morresse de ataque cardíaco aos 68 anos. Foi no passado dia 22 de Fevereiro. Era actualmente o presidente da companhia, fundada em 1884 pelo seu bisavô. Um homem de apetite devorador e de excessos gastronómicos, cujo maior prazer era a mesa. Fica aqui a minha homenagem e a esperança que o molho continue a inflamar palatos.

Não sabia nada s/ o tal tabasco, muito popular por aqui. Pensei que vinha do México. Também não faço uso dele, aliás de nenhum

Gosto de picante mas apenas o célebre jindungo pequenino num preparado que faço. Já provei Tabasco e para mim sabe muito a vinagre o que não gosto. Não conhecia a história e obrigado pela partilha.

Embora não use pimenta, me filio aos pesames!

Norival R. Duarte said...

Aviso aos curiosos de plantão: a pimenta utilizada nos molhos Tabasco são importadas do Brasil, conforme reportagem de uns anos atrás da TV-Globo. Outra fonte de referência e comprovação são as guias de exportação existentes na CACEX.

E nem por isso o Brasil se torna país de primeiro mundo!

I drop a comment each time I like a post on a blog or if I
have something to add to the conversation. Usually it is a
result of the passion displayed in the post I looked at.
And after this post "A MORTE DO SENHOR TABASCO". I
was actually moved enough to drop a thought :-) I do have a couple
of questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be just me or do some of the comments
look like left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on
additional social sites, I would like to follow you. Would you make a list all
of your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism
or copyright violation? My website has a lot of unique content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being ripped off? I'd truly appreciate it.

I've been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more useful than ever before.
