This I heard was President Reagan's favorite homemade chili as prepared
by White House Executive Chef Henry Haller. Will serve about 16
people. Chef Haller had served variations of this chili recipe
in the White house since the Johnson administration, and it has
proven to be one non-partisan pot of chili.
This recipe takes time, but is well worth it. Use the freshest salmon you can find. It is best to cut the pieces of salmon all the same size so you get even brining and smoking. Great for canning as well. Note: You may add other flavors to the fish such as garlic powder, pepper, soy sauce etc. if you like. The recipe can easily be doubled. You can use your imagination and try other types of fish as well. Even small whole fish.
I named this after my mother-in-law as this was her amazing sauce. I am posting her original recipe and it can get quite thick, so you may add extra water as I do to thin it out the way you want. It has no tomatoes, so all you taste is the great chili flavor. It freezes well too. I must stress that you use Gebhardt's chili powder for this recipe. I have tried other chili powders, but the taste is NOT the same.
I slightly altered this from a recipe found in Cooking Light Magazine. I substituted splenda for the sugar and dijon for the whole-grain mustard. Any type of mustard however would be outstanding in this simple dish.
This is a easy quick bread version of the traditional German Christmas bread made with yeast. No waiting for dough to rise. No waiting for bread to mellow. I do not care for the citron and orange peel, so I substitute with orange flavored dried cranberries. This recipe makes 2 medium loaves.
