#1492311 [Sep 18] What are you working on this week?

Posted by SavinaRed on 18 September 2017 - 05:14 PM

took out an 8x4x1 foot deep brick strawberry patch and placed them along my fence line and used that area for some of my container tree's. Now I need to figure out what to do with all the brick. And my 57 year old back is killing me lol

Drive down to China town for some hard to find items like dried gardenia fruits for danmuji and good fish balls.

 

Bottle some of my jalapeno sauce for gifts and samples.

 

Make some jalapeno relish with a mix of ripe and green.

 

Finish installing my LED motion sensor light on the back deck. Just need to finish mounting the small solar panel. Probably put a hard wired one in the garage too.

 

Im thinking a mild coconut curry sirloin roast with 1 or 2 Scotch Bonnets, carrots and taters would be nice. Maybe use some brown basmatti for a change.

I want the relish recipe :)

 

I have 100 plus ripe red Jals I need to do something with soon.

#1487883 Red Jalapeno & Serrano Sauce

Sounds interesting. I'm curious about the cinnamon. Is it something you heard about someone doing or did you just go for it without knowing what would happen?

 

We Greeks use cinnamon in many dishes and with just a hint of it tasted really good. You know its there but not prominent.

#1487301 Red Jalapeno & Serrano Sauce

Posted by SavinaRed on 28 August 2017 - 02:24 PM

Yesterday I picked over a hundred jals and serrano peppers that were red and made my first sauce of the year. I used all the peppers which filled up 3/4 of my Blendtec and used 2 cups ACV, 1 sweet onion, 3 TBS of garlic, 1 TBS seasalt, 2 TBS honey, 1tsp smoked paprika and a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon. It turned out really good and once cooked down made 10 bottles of bright red sauce. I'll try and post pics later. Its very tasty and everyone really liked the flavor profile. I thought I would try something a little different from the norm.

I have those jumping spiders all over my front and back yard and they are smart. When you get near them they scoot away really fast.

I just ordered a peppercorn plant from Logee. They have a vine type growth pattern and can get 10 plus feet. I love fresh pepper corns and can't wait to grow this plant to maturity. I'll post pics when I get the plant.

I planted one of my 8 avocado trees in the ground and pulled out an apple tree and gave it to a friend where the avocado tree is has now taken its place in my backyard. Also I have so many peppers ripening with no time to make anything so I might just vacuum seal them and freeze them for later use. I also picked weeds for several hours Saturday which sucked lol. 

 

This will be a crazy week my son is coming today from out of state and my daughter and son inlaw from out of the country for my mothers funeral this Thursday. She passed away a week ago from yesterday. So this will be a week I'm not looking forward too  :(
