Black becomes red.


                         

It's taken a while, but my black chilies have now (at long last) started to turn red.

                     

Not quite sure yet what I'll do with them, probably dry them in the sun, then blitz them into chili flakes. These (below) are the first picking.


These babies are hot; and I mean sweat-inducing HOT.

  1. I am currently fermenting a jar of jalapeno peppers. In a few days, I will drain off most of the brine then add some cider vinegar and keep them in the fridge.

    2. Cro, I bought this contraption that fits on the top of a canning jar to ferment foods like kim chi and saurkraut etc. It does work and it can be ordered from Lehman's catalog.

  3. Great crop but I think I'll stick to the milder ones.

  6. They are such a vibrant colour. I"d fear my face might turn that colour with one bite. I would turn them into flakes , too but maybe decorate the kitchen a little with a string of them.

  7. So this is the end of the mistery of the black chilies.

  8. You could make a batch of Pepper Jelly. Use up some of your regular red peppers and throw some of these to give it a kick. I can't keep my pepper jelly in stock. My kids eat it with crackers and cheese and use it to embellish a sandwich. I'm sure you have a recipe, but if not here is a link to mine http://razmatazblog.blogspot.ca/search?q=red+pepper+jelly

    1. It looks, and sounds, delicious. Unfortunately the 5 cups of sugar rules it out for me.

  9. 'Ring-burning hot' is the description used around these parts.

  10. The sort you "enjoy" twice, on the way in and on the way out. I think I'll pass.

  12. First of all congrats on the new grandchild. Beautiful!
    Now about those peppers. I once got an "emergency call" while at work from my hubbie years ago as he and our young son at the time, accidently ate some hot peppers from our garden. He stated water was not helping. I told him eat bread. When I got home an entire loaf was missing as well as all the hot peppers from the garden. Some folks have no sense of adventure
