Our chillis are just beginning to come ready now. A bit late, but all grown from seed.
In the bowl - Habaneros - Lloyd's favourite. Sudra - new this year, still green. Rainbow chillis.
This is a fraction of what we will have. This year is shaping up to be bumper!
Now, as you know I grow these for Lloyd and he does all sorts with them.
This little lot got turned into 2 bottles of incredibly hot sauce. He reckons it needs about three weeks to mellow.
Recipe ( copied from Lloyd's notes)
20 rainbow chillis
50ml rice wine vinegar
All simmered until v.soft then blended and strained
Add 1tbsp each of vinegar, light soy and dark soy.
(thank you to Karen for emailing this morning to ask for some chilli recipes!)
A couple of weeks ago he also made chilli salt which has gone down an absolute storm with our friends.
He used all the chillis we dried last year - put them in a blender ( we use a coffee one and have it just for spices) seeds and all and blend. Then add the same amount of salt and blend again - voila!
