#1330442 What was the last spicy meal you cooked?

Posted by spicefreak on 20 June 2016 - 03:25 PM in Cooking With Fire!

I tend to opt for green Tabasco on mine but that's just me. Don't think I've ever had a hot mac and cheese.

On the other hand, I did cook up some enchiladas using a homemade Chilhuacle Negro salsa the other night and, despite being rather on the mild side, it came out pretty well. Definitely got their deep, rich flavour coming through with its hints of cocoa and unsmoked tobacco. I wouldn't have it all the time but it was a very enjoyable variation on one of my favourite meals. Just wish I'd left out the coriander.




#1386635 Lets see your meanest, most gnarly pods!!!

Posted by spicefreak on 11 November 2016 - 05:16 PM in Hot Pepper Talk

Quick followup: The Infinaga tasted like a slightly chemically Bhut. Not bad but not worth eating over regular Bhuts flavourwise. It was strangely mild for what should have been a super but, as it worked its way down, it seemed to get hotter and hotter until I was left with quite an uncomfortable stomach warmth from just the very tip. It seems to be a slow release pepper that doesn't do much up top.

I'll post my Jigsaw when it's ripe. Don't see the appeal of all these baby photos myself.

F4 Bonnet/Reaper Hybrid. Felt pretty solid so I was rather worried but, despite the mass of placenta and glistening oil, it was no worse than a mild Ghost.

A mild Ghost that lingered at full strength on the lips for most of an hour, mind you.

 

Very flavourful, though like neither of its parents. More like fruit pith, with all the right floral notes and not too much else. Extremely strong smell and prety bold taste, too.

 

Assuming its brothers/sisters aren't massively superior, I'm saving these seeds for next season.

 

EDIT: Pretty sure you're seeing the effects of flash on oil there. The placenta was white IRL.

I've never had a tail be hot compared to the main pod but they're still strong enough.

The Infinaga is one twisted MoFo!

Can we breed it with a twisted super and call the resulting mess a Brazilian Scarfish?



#1350338 The General Taco thread. All things taco.

Posted by spicefreak on 13 August 2016 - 06:38 PM in Cooking With Fire!

Got to side with TKNS here, unless you're making desert tacos then they should never be flour (or heaven forbid the monstrosity that is "soft corn") tortillas.

Basically everything else except chips/nachos should be made from flour but, if the first ingredient isn't corn, they should never touch a real taco.

Package recieved, 2 packets emptied of the last couple of seeds (Peach Habanero and Cheiro Roxa) and 5 new packets added.

The added varieties are Trinidad Perfume, Red Serenade (as opposed to the Orange in there already), Tobago Seasoning, FG Jigsaw (straight green to red pheno, not the one that passes through gator and orange before red) and, at Mitzi's request, a small number of Red Sugar Rush, which should hopefully still do a few people.

 

Will post on monday.

Currently got nothing to contribute but some fancy striped bell peppers but I'm from the UK and would certainly be interested in participating.

Darn it, thought I had two good purple-pinks out of this.

Let's him confirm again. I was confused as well. If he is in, I will add him between 6 and 7.

 

I would like to be involved but haven't been the most active on the forums as of late. If I've missed my chance, I totally understand.

Recieved and picked out a few things but no last-ofs. Adding Pink Tiger, Fish Pepper, Puerto Rican Yellow, 7-Pot Bubblegum White, California Reaper, Fatalii Seeds' "Turkish Pepper" and some NuMex Lemon Spice Jalapeños.

Will send on to Mitzi tomorrow.

UK will not be in the EU next year so this may be the last year we can participate; eek!  (I voted Remain; does that help?)

 

I'm just happy that we managed to stay this long, TBH, I wasn't expecting 2018 to even be a possibility. I'm in.

If I'm still in Europe at the time, I'd love to take part again.

Just to confirm, package sent.

Just a heads up, Scotland is still in the UK. I expect they'll want out if we go ahead with the plan to leave Europe but seeing UK and Scotland next to each other like that is still weird for now.

Package recieved, will send out in the next couple of days. I'm struggling a little though as I've now managed to narrow my choices down to 17 varieties I want.

Still waiting on the Peach variety for that.

So much success so soon! I haven't got a single fruit yet but then, several of my varieties were put on to germinate late due to space.

I got a sprout from the Chilhuacle Rojos, though, that's what most excites me and I do have flowers starting.

 

I take it I'm out as far as next year is concerned?

Scotsbonnet can I get your address in a PM so I can get it sent off asap when I get it please :-)

 

Getting yours to me might also be helpful :P.

Rouge coloured Peter's Pepper look alike, how interesting.




#1478513 Candied Jalapenos & Habaneros

Posted by spicefreak on 26 July 2017 - 04:22 AM in Cooking With Fire!

I'm going to have to caution against doing this with supers, though. Whole family telling me never again and even I was coughing and spluttering after accidentally breathing in over the pan.



#1411732 Post Pictures of your collection or fridge!

Posted by spicefreak on 25 January 2017 - 08:33 PM in Hot Product Reviews and Discussion

Here's my collection to date.

my favorities of the collection were:

Pain 100%
Marie Sharp's Beware
Acid Rain
Crazy Gerry's Mustard Gas

 

 

Ah, 100% Pain. My friend brought that thing out during a game of truth or dare and the daree had his tongue under a tap for over an hour from just the tip of a teaspoon.

I downed a tablespoon just to prove a point, since this was back before my serious chilli days and I was still naïve enough to do such stupid things. It was freakin' hot but not so much so that I had to let them see it.

 

A couple years later, I discovered that it was my very first extract sauce, though none I've tried since has been anywhere near as mild. I remember it fondly.

 

 

How is the Mustard Gas? The numbers say it shouldn't be above an eight on my scale but I get the feeling that the mustard oil will change that drasically.

It's the most unique extract sauce I've seen and I very nearly bought it when it was in my local store but, between the price and the fact that I haven't fully fleshed out my blog's natural scale yet, I didn't feel like I could justify it. I'm still interested, though.
