A very interesting article. And I imagine helpful too. I've grown chilies for years and never did much with the abundance once the
neighbors refused more: except the usual; pickle the jalapenos and dry the thin skinned ones. Dummy me! I never thought of making my own rubs! My husband will be delighted ( I spend alot on different seasonings and rubs.) Thank you for the article and the suggestions for combinations. Happy Gardening!
It took us several years of accumulating dried hot peppers in jars, before realizing how easy it was to grind them up for use in spices. You and your husband will love having your own home-made, ground pepper handy, especially for BBQ foods!
All the best and Happy Gardening to you too ^_^
Wind: Thank you for your reply! Now, to come up with some exotic combinations...hahaha. I have tried making jalapeno jelly, and it turned out rather well. My Hubby is a grill fiend: so I'm really experimenting with blends now.
Always have to give him something new to experiment with. Hope the weather changes soon. We have a weeks worth of 60's-70's; then back to the 40's. Plus our nights are still frosty. I have all these little green babies just waiting to get
out in the sunshine.
Snobear, did you do anything special to make your Jalapeno jelly? We are going to try and make some this year. There aren't many recipes around for it since it is not your typical jelly. I'm thinking we probably won't use any food coloring, just leave it the natural color.
