    fermenting Raspberry Chocolate Cacao ferment

    I finally got my random fruit ferment going on a whim! Did a mash of a +/-lb or so of choc habs, some of them lightly smoked before freezing with pecan, a 12oz pack of frozen raspberries, and a good portion of the almond/dk chocolate snacking chocolate. Also used a couple Tbs of active brine...

    Ferments sauces purees and homogeneity

    What is the process that combines liquids and puree in sauces and pepper ferments? Is it the cooking that does this and length of time part of the equation? I've never paid attention to this until recently as I lots of times add a smidge of xanthan gum to combine the ferments at the end, but how...

    Purple sauce?

    I have these carrots from the final harvest that are purple/dk red, and one called a black nebula. How would I make a purple sauce to use them so it doesn't muddy up normal colors of yellow, orange, etc colored peppers and additional ingredients? Was thinking maybe if I use lightest color...

    Become a chef?

    Wasn't sure where this would be best to post so I posted it in a couple spots. I am wondering what it would take to become a chef without much prior "formal" training, other than H.S., but very much self-educated as well as pursuing information, techniques, practice, etc. vigorously. Have never...

    seeds Removing seeds from placenta after dry/mostly dry

    Hello there, figured I'd drop a line in here to ask about how to go about isolating seeds after all removed and dried out? I have trays and trays of cores where I just popped the whole placenta out of the peppers seeds and all intact, but how to separate the seeds effectively at this point? Wish...

    Storing sauces and canned products temperature

    Hello, I have been meaning to ask this question for some time but kept forgetting-but is it less than ideal or more ideal to keep our products like sauces, purees, canned/jarred stuff, and bottles exposed to the colder winter Temps vs indoors? I have a shed outside that's not insulated but stays...

    Pepper rinsing

    Should hot peppers and regular peppers (as well as other typical veggies growing in our gardens) be rinsed/dried prior to fridge or countertop storage, and then processed or is it best to leave them in their picked state up until the point of usage or processing? Seems debatable as I know lots...

    nutrients Megacrop, J. R. Peter's, and other dry nutes

    Just wanted to let everyone know that's been at the mercy of all the bottled nutrients and getting forked over a ton of money on different products such as calmag, silicon, part a, b, c etc to give these dry nutes a shot.. I did and haven't looked back at dynagro or GH or any of em...

    media Coir media blends for DTW outdoor growing

    I figured this would be the best place to post this, but was wondering if anyone has experimented with adding something to Coco coir pith in addition to fiber/chunks to retain more moisture to create a more consistent nutritive container media. I use a combo of coir pith 50%/fiber+chunk coir...

    GH flora system-anyone?

    Got a new package today! Ordered this before some of the other recommendations on the Forum, wondering if I should just stick with this if it actually is good stuff and just learn how to use it.
