Topics I've Started

Crystal Plus

16 August 2019 - 11:29 AM

Love Crystals with some stuff like cold fried chicken. Since it was mentioned about using another commercial sauce for a base i did this today.


1/2 cup Crystals

1/2 cup water

1/3 cup cider vinegar

2 tbs aji panca powder...probably could have used 3

1/2 tsp granulated garlic

1 mostly dried CARDI Scorpion pod cut up in small pieces.

Cooked down till slightly reduced. Might have lost a 1/4 cup.


First off the heat increase from that single Scorpion pod is huge and since its pretty much slowly air dried the chinense flavor is really toned down. I think you would have to tell someone for them to even know it has any chinense in it.


This still tastes very much like Crystals. You know that good solid "tang" you get from a fermented cayenne mash and white vinegar. The goal was not to end here. I have a 12oz bottle but i didnt want to cook it all. After it cools i will mix it into the rest of the bottle and blend it up.


Damn tasty so far for the extremely low cost to make. A 12oz bottle is only around $1.50.

Anyone grown these?

I got some pods in a trade at the Farmers Market. I think his seeds came from StrictlyMedicinals website. Looks like a nice compliment to my aji panca. Supposed to be hotter and an anuum. Dry and powder or maybe for a paste?


Chilhuacle Negro



7 Podz sauce

Yeah 7 Podz because it will have 7 pods in it


1 Tekne Dolmasi

2 Dragons Breath

2 Scorpions



Cider vinegar, water, salt and sugar

First bonnet sauce of the season

06 August 2019 - 12:34 PM

TFMs mostly

Papa Dreadies

A few Scotch Brains

A few yellow rocotos

All seeds removed




Maybe the white part of some scallions




A couple whole fancy cloves

Fresh lemon thyme.....i dont usually add this but thyme is commonly used in Jamaica for cooking

A few black peppercorns

Dash of ginger powder

Probably some coriander seed


Cane vinegar and water 50/50 mix

Fresh lime juice to finish


Exact measurements later when i got it all deseeded but im hoping for around about 20oz of sauce.


I have more than these. The others are seed stock pods i have separated.


Taco Hell sauce

02 August 2019 - 12:30 PM

Its rumored that Taco Bell Diablo sauce has aji panca in it so that gives me an idea. Im still waiting on Reapers, Scorpions and such to ripen but i got a bag of panca powder. Plus a few dried pods of my own sooooo...


A couple ripe jala ...waiting on them too actually

Some aji panca

One of the supers but im leaning toward Scorpion or Reaper....just a little bit of supers



Maybe a little tomato and sweet red bell (tekne dolmasi)

cumin and coriander

Salt and sugar

Probably use cider vinegar



Probably do a chocolate/brown version of this later also with Naglah Brown.
