Gorgeous plants/pods. How does that PdN x Bhut taste?

the 1 that ripens Red taste like a Bhut.


The others that are ripening Peach colored taste like a Bhut, but more Floral (for lack of a better description)


and either of them, when eaten in the still (unripe) Purple stage taste more like the Pimenta De Neyde.

I wish I were better at: describing flavors


Thanks for looking

#1214579 Container Gardening On The Cheap: Homer Buckets Or Grocery Bags?

Posted by Guatemalan Insanity Pepper on 01 September 2015 - 09:37 AM

I agree with PeterS, and HybridMode01  about the Perlite.

I add LOTS of perlite to my grow mix.


This year, I experimented and used Homer buckets, expensive Root-Pouch's (for a bottom watering experiment), Cloth Grocery bags, and the cheap plastic grow bags from the local Hydro store.


If you'd like, you can see them in my attempt at keeping my 1st Glog here: http://thehotpepper....2-my-2015-grow/

(there's a few gaps, and it's long overdue for an update, but you can see the difference between the different containers) 

you can also see that the Green mernards Fabric Grocery Bags are already breaking down in less than 1 season (maybe the Wally bags are stronger?)


I have a short growing season, and I think the black plastic grow bags actually helped warm them up a little... With the colder weather we still have in May the plants in the black plastic Grow Bags took of more quickly, and they didn't seem to overheat last month either(something i was concerned about),

All in all they eventually did about the same though, maybe slightly better in the fabric bags (though they dried out more quickly and needed to be watered more often then the plastic bags or buckets)


We only have a couple more weeks before the night temps start getting to low to keep my peppers outdoors  :mope:

Now the really hard part is deciding which of my 70+ pepper plants gets overwintered, as I only have room for about a dozen indoors.


I hope any of this helps

#1214253 Experiments of a hot sauce making noob

Posted by Guatemalan Insanity Pepper on 31 August 2015 - 01:06 PM

I practically drank a bottle of SF's Tiki Torch this weekend ...


I don't know why, couldn't have predicted it, but it worked in a holy union with the country ham JHP sent me - and I went to town on both ...


I need to try growing some of those manzano peppers next season, if I remember ...


(Probably don't grow well here, actually, based on accounts I've read recently - too hot) ...

Now, I'm suddenly craving Breakfast Ham, and Eggs with SF's  Dee Roo Tiki Torch (which I need to order more of)

Thanks for reminding me  :P

#1214247 Experiments of a hot sauce making noob

Posted by Guatemalan Insanity Pepper on 31 August 2015 - 12:58 PM

Well, I have been making my own Jams and Jellies for years, and I love eating as well as growing Peppers, so i thought i'd order extra's this year for hot sauce experiments  :P

(as well as the opportunity to taste even more pods that I am not growing this year)


 I thought...   Why not give hot sauce making a try too...


and here's how 1 experiment went:

This experiment actually happened several weeks ago but i haven't got around to sharing it until now.



I took some fresh Ground cherry's from the Garden (husked & washed)



some Golden Kiwi from the Market

(yes it is supposed to be that color, it's also nearly hairless compared to the fuzz of a Green Kiwi)





I also picked up some imported Aji Amarillos, and some yellow Manzano's locally



Washed & de-seeded them,


I then simmered some Carrots, large Shallots, and some Garlic in some Rice wine vinegar (4.5%)


then i added the following pods (the circled ones) from an order i received from CoachSpencer so that i could add a little bit more kick.



altogether in the Pot  with 1/2 a cup of white Vinegar, and juice of 1 large Lime, before the motor boat comes in:



nearly final product in a Jar so it can age in the fridge for about a month:




first tasting:



Triscuits, with Havarti, and a big dollop of un-aged sauce.


it is Fruit forward, yet still savory and quite tasty.  I will definitely consider Golden Kiwi for sauce making in my next experiments!



This sauce will be used up possibly before even being bottled!



Please comment and let me know what you think of these ingredients for a sauce.

also any other suggestions, would be helpful, as I am, admittedly still a sauce making Noob.


:cheers: ,

and thanks for looking
