I just love growing things and now I have hundreds of HHW peppers.

My family won't touch them. They're way too hot to pickle for spaghetti sauce.

I don't want to waste food...what do you guys do with them?

I love those peppers, perhaps post the excess in the advert section of THP.

Why did you grow them?

+1 candied 

The amount of sugar will tone down the heat quite a bit. Enough that you might have trouble keeping the fam from scarfing em all.

try selling or giving away on the FaceBook or CraigsList. 


Personally, I'll eat a pig's ass if they cook it right.   -CB4-

Another +1 for candying. I think it's my favorite preservaton method. I got some lollipop molds so I may try to use those next time I candy jalapenos. I think it tones them down enough for non-pepperheads

I need to look into how to candy them.  Never done that.

 

Hot Pepper, I grew them because I didn't know where they were on the Scoville.  I thought because they looked like banana peppers they would be mildly spicy.

I've cut them into rings and pickled them in the past for sandwich extras. Worked well.

i sliced one into rings for last night`s salad. my family doesn`t like anything too spicy so i just grow them to eat myself. i slice them into rings along with Jalapenos and jar them up pickled. i also give some to my neighbor when he sees my harvesting and comments on how i have "a lot of nice looking peppers there". :banghead:  i will have to check out the candying thing also, it sounds good.

Weird thing is, the seeds from the very same packet (My Patriot Supply) were extremely mild last year.

That's why I was so surprised by how hot these are.

There's a really great candying guide somewhere here on the forum.

I've had similar experiences with HHWs; they seem to vary widely in terms of heat. One year, they were extremely mild, probably <2000shu. The next two years, they were at a Serrano++ level. Pods always looked the same, plants always produced a ton and, as I recall, all the pods from a given plant were on a very similar level...unlike, say, Jalapeños... Where you might get both burners and duds from the same plant within the same week.

I grew the HHWs for work, when I was jobcoaching at a little farm. I never really wanted to grow HHWs myself, even though I was impressed with their hardiness and productivity. Got or mild, I'm just not a big fan of their flavor. They do look rad, though.

You are entering the buttocks with the spicy hand of Chinese pepper? And pleasure from this low pepper? I am not sure but the scorpion pepper musk when raw, is the sexual experience. This is granted, and evident in the taste, and the woman jealous.
