#1470885 Bought an old house :)

Posted by dub_sauces on 26 June 2017 - 09:13 PM

Found some antique glass :)

Nice. My house was built in 1882 and as kids we used to alway find those antique glass, morphine containing, patent medicine style bottles... Didnt know at the time that everyone from the late 19th century/early 20th century was high as a kite. We used to just chuck em at each other.

#1470880 Custom hybrid rasberry sauce. Any ideas?

I think basic yellow/browns are sweeter than whites.  But you could also kick it up with some Walla Walla Sweets or Vidalias!  More expensive, but if you only need 1-2 for a small batch, I'd go for it.
 
And since you are working with black raspberries, you could also consider purple/red onions.  They tend to get grey colored when cooked, but if using in a dark colored sauce, they could work better than yellow onions.
 
 
Also consider Shallots.  the flavor of both garlic and onion in one.  Definitely caramelized.....!


Shallots. Duh. Now why didnt i think of that? Thanks for the brainstorm :)

Burying whole egg seems like pretty bad idea to me, but smeg knows, maybe salmonela colony won't be the only growing thing.


Lol. Nice Red Dwarf reference

Thanks for all the ideas so far, im tempted to just take my recipe for pineapple ghost pepper sauce and replace the pineapple with these berries. Im worried about their interaction with the garlic and onions though...

Those black raspberries are beautiful! Any back story as to how/why the previous owners did that? 


Here is a post i made in another topic explaining what i know... But the short answer is that they had more money than they knew what to do with.

so I have a VERRY unique strain of black raspberry that has been growing in my yard organically for more than twice as long than ive been alive (I'm 36). when I was a little kid we used to keep like an acre of just a berry patch but after my dad got sick and then died there was no one around to take care of them and the lawn service just decided to mow them all down one day ( I could have killed a bunny I was so mad). well ive moved back into the house a few years ago to take care of it and the yard and stuff and was able to save a few plants back then and have them growing in spots that are impossible to get a mower to now, my question is as follows....

ive tried cloning them but the methods I remember from previous cloning projects didn't work, Ive tried saving the seeds and replanting them but that didn't work. does anyone know anything about cloning raspberry plants from healthy established plants? or do I just need to fence off an area and let them do their thing for 10 years? if someone can give me a successful method to replicate these plants quickly I will mail them a big bottle of the hot sauce I plan on making with it...

these are not just plants I can go buy replacements for btw, the family that owned the property before me actually commissioned someone from Europe in the early 1900s to live here and adapt them to our climate and he lived on the grounds and kept crossing berry plants for more than a decade until he got it right. they taste like nothing else I can find, and I want to share them with the world but the plants are making that difficult.

I have managed to save the strain of black raspberry that the family who owned our property before us paid a shitload of money to have hybridized and tailored to our growing conditions...  this is the first pint I have gotten in years and I want to make a sauce with them... I have tons more to go pick but I want to do something special with the first ones... any good raspberry hot sauce ideas?

Posted by dub_sauces on 12 June 2017 - 06:39 PM

Yea it happens.

If it was every leaf then it may be something special. 

 

thanks,  good to know.  if it was bad genetics i would just dump the 500 or so jalapeno seeds i haven't planted yet

meh, my sauces are shelf stable so i dont worry about refrigeration and if i were to bring powders to equal the flavors of my sauces i would need a dozen different powder vials. its not just heat that im bringing, its taste as well.
