Not really a Glog in the true sense of the word ... just wanted to keep a bit of a record of what grew and what I did with it.


9 Dec 15

First proper pick of the season.

Took 60 green Cayennes off the one bush mainly because a few were getting a bit of mould when touching the soil and I wanted to free up some energy for the plant to grow new ones.

(this was about half of one 30cm high plant)



Weather's no good at the moment, can't dry them in the window as normal so made a sauce.


60 Chillies
1/2 Cup cheap white vinegar

1/2 tsp seas salt

Whizz up in blender.


Ended up sticking it in a saucepan for 10 mins just to soften the chillis up before adding couple TBSP Olive Oil and blending again just to make it smoother.


End result:

Fairly hot, rather bitter / green sauce.

Hopefully by Christmas it's 'matured' enough to give as a gift for a mate.

I'm thinking it will get sweeter but if not the hot, green, bitter will definitely work as a marinade for Prawns / Chicken / Beef
