Purea Di Peperoni | Pepper Purée

I think Purea Di Peperoni should be a staple in anyone’s fridge. It is really so easy to make this Pepper Purée and it is a great way to preserve seasonal produce.

Finalising our refunds from Air France and KLM did not go as planned. I sent Air France an email as requested and they could obviously only handle the Air France voucher. The response was positive, in that they would process the refund. But, it would take between 4 to 6 weeks to finalize the transaction. Seeing as we had paid over the money in 2020, another month for the cash was not a big issue. And, as promised, the funds were paid back into my credit card within the time frame. This has been set aside for our trip to Italy next year. However, the KLM voucher is not going to be refunded. I made part use of the funds when we went to The Netherlands last year. And a voucher was issued as the difference between the original amount and what the new flight cost.

The voucher value is under €30 which is really a small amount in the big scheme of things. Trying to argue with them to see things my way takes time. And time as we all know, is money. I am not stopping my pursuit of getting the refund. But nor am I chasing it with vigour and intent. I am also managing my expectations and will resign myself to losing the money. I have another month to get them to change their position. But if they don’t do so I will not allow myself to become upset. I will chalk it up to experience and hopefully we are never in the position again where we have to cancel flights. But if we are, I will not accept vouchers! Do you still have flight vouchers from during the pandemic?

  1. Hi Tandy, it is annoying to lose money when it’s out of your control. I lost $60 iro our cancelled trip to the Netherlands earlier this year. What do you use this purée for?

  2. I’m certainly all about making things from scratch, but there’s a pepper purée from Hungary that I’ve used in a few recipes on the blog, but I use it more often than that. There are sweet and spicy versions. It’s called paprika creme, and it comes in tubes and jars. Very handy. The brand is Univer.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
