#1469572 Must haves if you like to cook Asian foods

Posted by ShowMeDaSauce on Yesterday, 12:21 PM

Had to bump this after trying........

 

Kikkoman reduced sodium Tamari and Kikkoman gluten free soy sauce which is also basically a Tamari (no wheat soy sauce). I normally don't buy Kikkoman but i do get the reduced sodium occasionally just to cut back but both of these are fairly good and widely available.

 

 

Ingredients

WATER, SOYBEANS, SUGAR, SALT, VINEGAR, ALCOHOL, LACTIC ACID.

OK ok i didn't really cook the taquitos unless a microwave counts but i did make the sides from scratch. Cukes are from the garden and i added some homemade lemon drop powder to the slaw. :D




#1469304 Yellowish spot on my coolapeno pepper fruit

Calcium nitrate is the Nitrogen part of several commercial fertilizers. Its also very high in calcium




#1469282 [Jun 19] What are you working on this week?

Posted by ShowMeDaSauce on 21 June 2017 - 12:21 PM

Had to taste a CCN Gochu this morning. One was kinda close to the dirt and i was curious. It was much hotter than i thought it would be. Upper jalapeno hot and very tasty.

 

Got everything on my list done except the kkakdugi and cleaning up after the home repairs.

 

Need to make some more coleslaw.

 

Picked about 7 cukes.....Mmmmm cucumbers and red onions with Roland Special Reserve dry white wine vinegar. :D




#1469264 Milder Habanero (or hotter Trinidad Pimento/Seasoning)

Posted by ShowMeDaSauce on 21 June 2017 - 10:38 AM

Nigel gave the Galapagos hab great reviews. Its on my list for next year for sure if i can find some plants or seeds.

 




#1469246 Ive got blooms/nodes/pods on all but......

Posted by ShowMeDaSauce on 21 June 2017 - 09:44 AM

Well it was just taking its own sweet time. There are some very small flowers or the beginning of flowers on in this morning. I did sprinkle a little Epsom salt on the soil when i moved it. Not sure if it helped since it was a very tiny amount. Color seems a tiny bit off still. Next watering i will give it some fertilizer.

Im growing the Beni this year. Hopefully they will be well under orange hab heat. Something about as hot as a upper end serrano and heavy chinense flavor would be really nice to find. I could make use of no heat or nearly no heat but the flavor would need to be exceptional. I love the flavor habs give to red meat curries.




#1469231 What pods can you buy at your local markets?

Posted by ShowMeDaSauce on 21 June 2017 - 08:58 AM

It really isnt that bad. I would grow them here but its not really an option with our summer heat and season length. They are nice looking orange Manzanos.




#1469221 What pods can you buy at your local markets?

Posted by ShowMeDaSauce on 21 June 2017 - 08:32 AM

Pretty much anything that isn't rare or baccatums. Quite a few are mislabeled. Many of them get really pricey..like nearly $20/lb for some of the supers. One Mexican market has Manzano for around $5/lb which isnt too terribly bad considering i cant find them fresh anywhere else.

 

What kills me though are the huge numbers of just really awful jalapenos. I mean no heat and poor flavor. Even the Mexican markets are spotty. Fresh Thyme market has been the only one that gets in good jalapenos and they are cheap. One market gets in Aji Dulce BUT they are never ripe. What a waste, the flavor is blah at best.

Wow, Semillas has some interesting varieties. Looks like a few Aji mid heat habs too.

There have been 2-3 leaves that look like this for a couple weeks. They are a bit darker green and have odd spots on the center vein.

#1468620 [Jun 19] What are you working on this week?

Posted by ShowMeDaSauce on 19 June 2017 - 02:33 PM

Oops almost forgot. I need to make some Kkakdugi (Korean radish kimchi). I bought a Korean radish the other day at the market, Slightly better than daikon but both work well.
