Topics I've Started

Gorizza's Hot Sauce 2017

05 August 2017 - 12:21 AM

Started with ~5 gallons worth of peppers, most of which are pictured below:




Then mixed up 7 sauces. Mostly cooked stovetop with EVOO and salt then packed with ACV and (my first time using) Xantham Gum.


The Sauces:

  • Habanero Mustard and carrot
  • Scotch Bonnet & Yellow Moruga with white wine, white pepper, and celery
  • Trinidad Moruga Scorpion and tomato garlic
  • Chocolate Douglah and blackberry
  • Bhut Jolokia and strawberry
  • Misc. Bhut crosses & Jalapeno with sugar, white pepper, and celery
  • Habanero berry


Maldivian Heart x Purple Bhut

22 July 2017 - 09:26 AM

This year Puckerbutt sold F4 seed (from F3 plants) of an "experimental variety" called CP 120 - Maldivian Heart x Purple Bhut https://store.pucker...-purple-bhut-f2


Here is the official picture from Chris Phillips:






I germinated several seeds and am growing a plant at my house, and gave one to a friend. I saw his plant for the first time yesterday and was shocked to see that they are segregating for pod type!


This one is mine, with the Jolokia pod type:




And this is his with the Habanero pod type, those pods are HUGE:



Obviously I'm saving seeds from both.


2017+2018 AAS winners

18 July 2017 - 05:24 PM

The 2018 AAS winners were announced recently, and although no varieties won in the "pepper" category this year, an ornamental pepper won in "flowers"


Takii Seed's "Onyx Red"http://all-americase...epper-onyx-red/






Because there was no AAS thread for last year (at least not in the search) I'll highlight last years winners as well


There were 4 AAS winners in "Pepper" last year:


PanAmerican Seed's "Aji Rico F1"http://all-americase...epper-aji-rico/



Clover Seed Co's "Chili Pie F1" - http://all-americase...pper-chili-pie/



Clover Seed Co's "Sweetie Pie F1" - http://all-americase...er-sweetie-pie/



PanAmerican Seed's "Mad Hatter F1" - http://all-americase...per-mad-hatter/









So what do you think? Have you had these varieties? Grown them in different Hardiness Zones? Are you more interested in getting seed now that they are AAS winners?

Kumquat & Ghost Sauce

12 July 2017 - 03:26 PM

I've got a handful of kumquats and a plant full of Ghost Peppers and have envisioned these two together in a sauce.


I was planning on deseeding the kumquats but leaving the skin on.  They are on the sour side, so I might add a dash of sugar.


What other flavors do you think could go well in this? Any other tips?

Roasted my first pod of the year

I know its only one pod, but its the first one big enough to roast (or in this case, grill) of the year
