In Topic: The does and donts of sauce making

Yesterday, 08:20 AM

Seeds are left in to prove that the sauce is using the whole pepper. Certainly in the hotter ones, that sell largely on their heat a lot of the time, knowing that the placenta was left in is actually a selling point.

I've not found seeds to impart much flavour to a sauce myself but, if all they add is texture, I don't particularly care for them.

In Topic: Aji Pineapple/Lemon powder taste

I picked up some Lemon Drop powder a while back. It's a unique flavour that's rather different from the fresh chilli but still has some citrus elements. Went well with morrocan food and made an excellent okra curry but was also just close enough to lemon to substitute for the fruit's juice in a honey apple upside-down cake.

I still find it quite curious that whites can bleed, given that it's a lack of colour.

Your right that's an Mojo Frutegum but your not right about the bleeding of the calyx. Most of the times the calyx colors up first before the pods completely ripens.

Thanks, that's very useful to know, I have not grown anything with a bleed myself so was a little uncertain on the matter.

I have heard that the bleed is a sign of ripeness so I'd assume that it comes in fairly late in development but not as late on as that pod looks.

Regarding the OP's plants, those look like the Fruitgum Bubblegum/Fruitiscense cross to me.
