Shorerider's 2018 season.

16 February 2018 - 11:01 PM

As I don't really do glogs, I thought I'd share a few pictures of my hauls this season.

 

This is the first major haul so far, I've been picking ripe pods here and there, but this one was a bulk lot.

Can anyone ID this pepper?

15 May 2017 - 10:45 AM

I found this pepper at a local park growing wild, there were quite a few plants, some I would believe to be more than one season old. We are at the end of our season here, yet these plants were still flowering and in perfect health.

 

Slender leaves, with pods that start green and ripen to orange. I would say orange would be the final color as I saw no red pods and the pods I picked were very juicy and detached from the calyx very easily.

Beautiful looking flower.

They are the sweetest tasting peppers I have ever had, with a taste very similar to a Nectarine. However, the aftertaste is very bitter, to the point of being unpleasant. Heat was not detectable at all.

 

Any ideas?

Cherry tomatoes seasoned with white pepper (white pepper is a must on fresh tomatoes) and some of my own Scarlet Pain sauce for good measure.

One of my best sammich's to date, hints of Rael's BBQ sauce made this sammich taste like it contained Bacon at times. Great sauce Rael.

Grilled T-Bone.

Grilled T-Bone with Arancini balls and side salad. 

 

T-Bones seasoned with my own spice mix, and cooked on my gas grill.

Arancini balls with Macedonian spicy sausage, Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese and fresh Parsley. These were a test TD entry, but unfortunately I had to work right through last weekend so was unable to enter. Seems Dru nailed them anyway.  :P

(Note: if you don't have a  deep fryer and are forced to fry in a pan, you'll most likely end up with Arancini cubes/pyramids......)

 

Plated up with a side salad.
