    preservation Dehydrating Peppers in High Humidity

    I’m ready to start dehydrating some peppers and my family is none too pleased. I usually do this indoors but they do not appreciate the aroma. My question is can I do this outside? I’m in Georgia and the relative humidity is about 75%. Does anybody think this would cause any...

    Newbie Sauce

    This is my second year attempting to make sauce. First year I made nothing worth repeating, nothing bad just not great. However thanks to all the information you guys provide on this forum and downright copying, I think I am starting to make some progress. Small batches are the norm until I...

    Help with Sport Peppers

    This is the first year I have grown sport peppers and I don’t really know much about them. I just picked a few to pickle. It’s been a while since I had a Chicago Dog but I recall them being smaller and darker green than the ones I just picked. Does anybody have any experience with these...

    Are any cayennes worth growing?

    I have been unimpressed with the Long Red Slim peppers myself, absolutely no heat. Last year I grew a few Ring Of Fire plants and was pleasantly surprised. I thought they were pretty hot for a cayenne. They also had a good taste and weren’t overly seedy. I have about 12 plants this year and...

    I have only been into growing hot peppers for about four years so every year most of my crop contains something new. I enjoy a range of peppers from mild to hot. My favorites from this year that I will be growing again are: Bhut Jolokia – I grew the “Giant Bhut Jolokia” from Pepper Joe. These...

    Why do you keep torturing yourself?

    Why do we do it? Scottborkowsi, that sounds exactly like me! My wife thinks I’m crazy sometimes. Unfortunately I think my pepper habit has turned my wife off on spicy food. She looks at me like I’ve lost my mind when I’m guzzling the milk and dancing around like a little girl when I’ve bit...

    pickling Pickling Question

    I just opened some of my Biker Billy Jalapeños I pickled about 4 weeks ago. I was very pleased with the taste and they retained every bit of the heat. I am new to pickling and my only complaint is that they were a little soft. I followed a basic recipe that call for about 5 parts vinegar to 1...

    I’ve Been Pepper Joe’ed!

    I ordered several seed varieties from Pepper Joe last season and each produced peppers exactly as described. My experience this year has not been quite as good. I really liked his Thai Sun peppers so I decided to grow them again. This is what grew this year: Last year they were maybe ½”...

    Greetings from Georgia

    Hey everybody, my name is Phil from Lawrenceville, Ga. I’ve been into hot pepper gardening for the last few years. My family thinks I’m a little obsessed but after discovering this website I realize I’m not half as nuts as most of you. Not yet anyway! I enjoy a wide variety of peppers ranging...
