I sauteed some sliced onion and yellow bell pepper with a view to blitzing it together with some red kidney beans to make a pate. I was planning to add a bit of (mild) paprika but the lid fell of and loads went in. I tried to scrape some of it off but I didn't think it would make too much odds. I added a few shakes of hot sauce and whizzed the lot together.
When tasting the finished product there was a horrible bitter taste. I added a wee bit of black strap molasses (thinking that might take the edge off it) but it is still bitter. I have no idea what to try now. I am loathe to try adding something out-and-out sweet like agarve nectar as the pate already has a slightly sweet taste at first, the bitterness is very much an after taste.
Any help greatly appreciated otherwise I may just have to consign this to the bucket!
ETA: now rescued to the point of being edible. Thanks.
