I just finished bottling a sauce with 4 lbs of rocoto, and 2.62 lbs of strawberries. This sauce, and many others are headed your way😃

that sounds amazing! any pics in the bottle? yet another of your recipe's i need to poach.

I was going to make a red rocoto jelly, but I may need to try my hand at this.

Yeah check out Dale's New Mexican Food thread in the Cooking with Fire section. 

His food and pictures are what got me started down this path.

Lomo Saltado- The Dish of Nation Building...I added a little flare from 'Merica in the form of a bed of Arby's curly fries



for the record, the curly fries were a little much, their seasoning was actually pretty noticable

and Pisco sour kicks ass


I will make this again and again

Join us as we take you on an aromatic journey through our home made fertilizer process.

No weighing, no measuring, no rules.

FPJ or Fermented Plant Juices have been used for centuries to feed the soil in gardens all around the world.

This time we obtained a free 50lb bag of some wonderful alfalfa meal, so why not brew it right!? Many different plant materials can be used, so find whats local and available to you!

We inoculate with a pull from our sweet and salty tanks.
Our sweet/carbs came from a black berry wine pressing and our salty/lactic acids came from our kitchen scrap tank. Both already full of microbial life, as you can see.

No need for narration or instruction. If you're watching this video, you already know the deal.

Nice Video Rich! 

How many times a year do you do that?

Are you still growing in ground or all fabric bags now?

I know you put A LOT of sweat into that plot, so are you putting your earth into the fabric bags or making your own blend of medium?

#1573170 Which of these varieties would you choose?....

Posted by Malarky on 04 August 2018 - 08:47 AM

Depends on what your looking for...and how much heat.
For all around use I'd say BahaGoat, for something hotter I'd say JPGS.
I think PeterStanley did a JPGS in a kratky a year or so ago and it was beastly. I can only imagine what a proper dwc would yield in a sunny conservatory

Cheers! and GoodLuck

Beautiful Dale...I'm just not sure how I feel about raw filter-feeders. I'd eat it though

PS Lomo Saltado is happening this weekend...stay tuned

#1572791 NewMexican Chiles in the Midwest

Posted by Malarky on 02 August 2018 - 03:14 PM

So I've found frozen Aji Amarillos and Larger Red rocoto so I'm thinking I may be able to continue to cook my peruvian faves without growing those...leaving me with a few open buckets.


One thing I can't seem to find locally is NewMex Chiles, and Dale's NewMexian Flog has me craving the southwest.

Does anyone have any experience to share about growing NewMexican Chiles in the midwest?

Looking for best yields and taste/heat and how they handle our shorter growing season. Good varieties to eat green or red?



Eric I'm looking at you...you always post that awesome picture of your basket full of big green chiles. what kind do you grow?



or maybe I should just buy a box and have them shipped 


ps i've got some big jim winner seeds, and some heritage and such, i'll check my supply

just starting to plan out 2019 :cheers:

Not much going on with my plant. Started on Jan 1(never again), it grew really fast in an aerogarden and I ran out of light and room for it. I think it stalled and got pot bound. eventually got outside in a 5ga bucket and these are the first few pods.
