#1426161 What pepper is this?

Posted by Pariah on 25 February 2017 - 03:42 PM

Sorry ....not even close.......I think this has happened to everyone at one time or another....put all your time and effort into growing something and finding out its not what you thought it was.

Very true. Try to look on the bright side. It isn't what you were hoping for, but your plant looks great and no doubt they will be tasty.

As others have said, NEVER order seeds on Amazon or eBay. Get directly from a breeder. Plenty of top notch folks here who won't dupe you.

Just threw my pants out the window.

We enforce a strict no pants policy anyways. 😉

Cut that sumbitch in half and show us the goods.
I am sick and tired of no money shots, and not being able to eat those.

I've got two leftover for breakfast. I'll cut one open for you then. 😉

I guess I shouldn't mention the perfectly cooked ribeyes and twice baked potatoes I made tonight that I didn't get money shots of. Yeah, I cooked those steaks in the bacon grease from the bacon I put in the potatoes...

Yet another unhealthy recipe from me!

Blintz recipe:

1 cup flour
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
4 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract (not that fake crap)
Pinch or two of salt

Cheese filling recipe:

1 cup of cottage cheese (drained)
8oz package cream cheese (softened)
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract (again, use real)
1 egg yolk
Lemon juice or zest to taste (optional)

Mix all blintz ingredients in a bowl until smooth. Set in fridge for now.

Now I take the cottage cheese and put in a cheesecloth and squeeze out the excess whey. Now mix all filling ingredients. Put in fridge.

Take an 8" or so skillet and spray with Pam. Pour about a 1/4 cup of blintz batter into pan and immediately swirl around the bottom to create a thin layer covering the bottom. It'll be like a tortilla. Cook until lightly browned and flip and brown that side. Place on plate and repeat until batter is used up.

Take blintz "tortillas" and put a scoop of filling in the center and fold/roll like a burrito. Repeat.

Next I like to either put a bit on oil in the pan and fry them on each side until browned and crispy or I put them in baking pan sprayed with Pam and throw them in the oven at 200 degrees until warmed up. Just depends on my mood (today was done in the oven).

I put a little dark chocolate drizzle on these today, but fruit pie filling goes great on them. Or whipped cream. Or whatever else that sounds good.


#1425485 Tomato soup... The right way! ;)

Dragonfire, I agree that adding a sugar source is essential. You have to combat the acidity. Never tried honey in tomato soup, but I use honey to sweeten up a lot of stuff.

And as promised, leftover tomato soup with runzas I made tonight. This is why I'm fat!

Alrighty, I sent out about 15 varieties (Aji Limon, LOT, various habs, various 7 pots, morugas and reapers) today. Some I only had enough seeds to send a couple, but it should get you started.

Who here didn't cherish this simple dish as a child? Back then it was Campbell's and Bunny bread with American cheese. Well here is my take on this classic...

46oz can of tomato juice
28oz can petite diced tomatoes
1 Vidalia onion, diced
3/4 stick unsalted butter
1/4 cup sugar
3 chicken bouillon cubes, crushed
1-1/2 cups heavy cream
1-2 teaspoons coarsely ground pepper
1-1/2 Tbsp dried basil
1-1/2 Tbsp dried parsley

In a large pot melt butter and saute onions until translucent. Add tomato juice, diced tomatoes, sugar, crushed bouillon cubes and pepper. Mix well. Test the acidity and add more sugar 1 Tbsp at a time if needed. Bring to just boiling. Kill the heat and add parsley, basil and cream. Mix and serve.

I made mine with a brie and swiss grilled cheese sandwich on sourdough bread. I like using Land O' Lakes garlic and herb spread to butter the bread. I also cook mine on a lower heat setting so the cheese gets really gooey.

Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures as I was too busy stuffing my face.

PM me your address and I will send you some seeds. The fine folks here have helped me expand my garden on numerous occasions, so I try to take every opportunity to return the favor since I believe in paying it forward.

Is there anything in particular that you are looking for?

Cauliflower goes killer with this too. Most Indian markets carry a green chili that is kinda mild. Close to jalapeno heat level. They are delicious as pakora too.
I use ghee almost exclusively but i don't use heavy cream. I use fat free half and half instead and it works very well for Indian masalas. The ground cashews are a very nice touch. There are a couple creamy type masalas that just dont taste right without them. The best makhani ive tried has ground cashew in it. IIRC it can vary based on northern or southern versions.
I get shallots fairly cheap so i use them often along with the onion.
Now im hungry for some. :D

Cauliflower would be awesome! We love cauliflower! Must try this.

I wish we an ethnic market. Closest one is probably Denver area (10 hours away). Even Billings doesn't have anything. I stocked up on Thai chilies when I left Ohio (20+ pounds) They have a place in Columbus called Saraga that has everything you'd ever need. I miss them.
