Wondering if anyone can shed some light on "if" I went wrong and "where".
I made a sweet ancho chile sauce off the cuff last night to go with some pork (wanted something smokey but not bbq) and the flavor is VERY... raisin-y.
Took two dried anchos, boiled some water, soaked them for about 7 minutes. Removed stem and seeds. Then blended with a quarter cup of honey, a squeezed orange, some corriander, kosher salt and a small splash of cider vinegar.
Is the raisin taste due to me not preparing the ancho's properly or is it how the ingredients would come out?
