Too many chillis

Posted: 26/08/2014 at 08:51
Well chilli heads how is your harvest? Mine is great and it's time to start to make sauces, jams and rubs ..... So share your harvest ideas here!!! If you don't have a dehydrator to dry your chillis don't worry. Set your oven as low as it will go and slowly dry your harvest. Check every hour so they don't burn and remember to save some seeds for next year. The vest chilli sauce recipe I have found is as follows: Rehydrate 12 dried chillis (24 if they are small)in white vinegar ( keep the vinegar afterwards it develops quite a kick) After a week they should be plump again( you can of course use fresh) X 3 peeled peppers ( usual burn skin method or buy a pre peeled jar) Half a bulb of celery leaves and all Half a teaspoon on cumin powder X1 onion X 3 cloves of garlic X. 1/4 cup of cider vinegar X 1/4 cup tomato sauce or passata 3 cups of water Place all of the above ingredients in a pan and summer until the liquid reduced to roughly a cup and a half . Then blitz in a mixer or using a stick blender. Taste at this stage ad if you think it needs vinegar add little until it tastes just yum!!! Keeps for ages!!! Tinker with the recipe to add to it to your taste.... We use smoked chipotles as the chilli base (6 chipotle and 6 of out chillis) Ensure the bottles are sterile and enjoy X

Now planning my woodland prarie lol got homes for my phlomis have decided not to get rid of thalictrum cause I love it so much and I think it will blend with the mix of grasses and carex.

Morning all...... Just back from the chilli festival best Eva!!!! Ooohhhhh still can't post pics. We came across an amazing ornamental grass chap when we were there MEADOWGATE NURSERY and managed to buy 4 grasses as the woodland garden gets enough sun to grow echinecea so I'm going to pull everything up in there ( phlomis being donated to a friend ) and prarie plant it!!!! Whoops lmao..... Chilli heads I bought a few plants for seeds next year !!!!! Ur as always welcome to some seeds when they are ready
