Topics I've Started

Red Jalapeno & Serrano Sauce

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 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.

Overwintered Rocotto

At least I'm getting a good start on one of my over-wintered rocottos throwing out pods right now. My other plant should start throwing pods within the next couple of weeks. I'll throw up some pics once both plants get pods on them. I should have a good harvest with these 2 plants this year and make some nice yellow sauce from one and a red from the other. All my seedlings this year were killed from trying to speed up the hardening off process so I learned a valuable lesson. Next year I will start me seedlings earlier and harden them off slower. 

Got Grapes ?

I was at Costco buying a fan and came across these and I just couldn't resist for $12.99. They sound really tasty and I've always wanted to give grapes a try. Anyone else grow eating or table grapes ?

An offer I just couldn't resist

I was at home depot window shopping :) ya right.  Well I come by this organic section that had 6 packs of veggies for only $4.48.  I see one with Bhut, Hab, Serrano, Thai, Jalapeno and Poblano. So I bought it. :)
