Looking for a BWB safe spicy V8 recipe

21 August 2018 - 12:23 PM

anyone have any tried and true recipes for a spicy V8 that is safe to can in a BWB.

I have a bunch of tomatoes that are nearly bursting from all our recent rain and canning some V8 might be a great way to salvage them.

NewMexican Chiles in the Midwest

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:

Found what I think is serviceberry right beside the patio we each lunch on at work.

the berries don't seem to darken to purple/blue (birds might eat them too fast)

But some were definitely a darkening red. a few little seeds inside.

I tried one and didn't die, cramps, vomit, etc.

can't for the life of me remember if it has the flowers and fall foliage. I eat next to it all the time.

any specific way to ID?

Welcome to 2018

There is probably not going to be a whole lot of action around here until March 1st when I'll start soaking seeds.

I was overwhelmed in 2017, starting in January was not a good idea. This year I plan to pot up the plants in stride and avoid being root bound. Starting in March and outside in buckets in the middle to end of May. I'll probably try to sell excess plants locally on CL/FB as well, instead of trying to keep every seed I sprout alive myself.


2018 Grow List so far...


7pot Cinder

PDN x Bonda

Peach Bhut-WM strain

CGN21500-WM strain


PapaDreadie SS-Good Pheno from TGCM :pray:

Aji Limo Rojo

Aji Limo Amarillo

Aji Panca

Giant Red Rocoto

Peruvian Red Rocoto-OW

Yellow Brainstrain-Growdown


I'm really struggling to decide if I should grow Aji Amarillo, Big Red Rocoto's, and maybe even Panca now that I found frozen amarillos/rocotos and panca paste at the store now. And the amarillos and rocoto's take soo long to ripen...

I'd like to fit in Aji Dulce, Aji Arnaucho, cgn23209, SugarRush Peach and Trepadeira do Werner, but I don't know. 


I've got enough BahaGoats in the freezer to last me I think. I actually might have enough Amarillos too now that I think of it.

I'm growing cgn21500 just to finally get it off my bucket list. I hope its good.

The more I type, the more bummed i get that i can't grow all these...
