Green chilli harvest

Post by Mash » Wed Dec 04, 2019 8:41 am

OK so the final chilli harvest complete.

Because of the foreshortened summer I now have 2 kg of 2inch green mean chillies.

Any ideas anyone?

Dry? Pickle? Blanch? Ferment?

Dry.
My dad used to infuse sherry with chilli as a hot table sauce.
You can also cook them into a sauce to be used during cooking - too concentrated to use as a table sauce.

Dry it from me too.
I have all sorts of dried veg. some almost 12 years old.
Add a little water, and you would not not know.
Not that I consider myself a Prepper. :)

I dried all my red chilli. They crush brilliantly and really usable.

Was trying to think of something different for these. Not sure they will keep their colour off I dry them.

No Prepper here, but we do keep stores.

Bonkers idea... Could I distill out the chilli essence into alcohol or oil. For cooking?

The boss dries Chilli's as you said this year the green ones are hot, very hot
she made a curry with some in the other night and it nearly blew my head off.

I think drying might win through.

Distilling them seems to be the way you make pepper spray - that or very anti social screen de-icer. :shock: :shock:

Try dropping them, chopped, into neutral.
I end up doing this most years with a good portion of my garlic.
After I have fished out the garlic for culinary use, I have Garlic vodka, which several people use in the kitchen for cooking.
It may work for chilli's also?

I am all for not swearing at each other online.
Is this the way to ensure it?

Totally bemused, because I am at a total loss for words and thoughts.
Actions?
Those I can do. :D
Screen shots taken etc.
No editting options open, that are unsee-able.
