Aji Arnoucho puree/sauce

10 October 2018 - 08:29 PM

So, I had some of these beautiful Aji Arnoucho peppers.



I wanted to make a sauce, but wanted to let these pepper's great flavor come through as much a possible.

So I did this to minimize other ingredients/flavors from intruding on the pepper flavor:


2        cups     Aji Arnoucho - lightly packed, cut in half and deseeded

1/2     cup       White onion - finely chopped

3/8     cup       White vinegar

1/4     cup       Water

1 1/2  t            Sugar

1/2     t            Pickling salt


+1/2  of a small White Bhut Jolokia as I wanted a bit more heat than the Aji Arnoucho provided.


(This sauce is not processed and sealed.  It will just go into the frig to use now, so I did not need to worry about adequate acidity to make it shelf stable/safe)


Yield was only a little more than a half pint, but with a fine flavor and beautiful bright, fire red color.






Tepin x Lemon Drop F6

22 July 2018 - 12:24 PM

This is my Tepin x Lemon Drop.  I believe this year is F6.   These are always vigorous growers and flush with peppers.


I have been growing them since smileyguy697 send me pods from his F1 plant.  Each year I save seed from the largest pods. 


The F1 pods were a little less than an inch long.  The peppers have been getting slightly larger with each generation.  This year they were a bigger (pun intended) surprise.




If you look really close you can see a few peppers





This is the first to ripen - picked this morning

What does it mean when I cannot view another members profile page and their small profile box doesn't appear when I hover over their name?


Are they no longer a member?

Am I on their "ignore list"?

Have they been banned?

Have I been banned and no one will ever see this message and I'll never get an answer?
