If I only Grew 5 Peppers?

A coupe of time I’ve been ask, If I could only grow 5 peppers what would they be?

  1. Thai Orange – for all oriental dishes and soups
  2. Cumari – Best pepper for making sauces (dam it’s good)
  3. Aji Lemon – for the best sauces ever… fish, chicken, eggs, burgers, etc.
  4. Chocolate Habanero – for powder. Goes good in just about everything.
  5. Bubble Gum x Moruga – It’s not the hottest but it’s my go to when I want to really heat some soups up.

Before I get a bunch of emails explaining why I didn’t include some main peppers. I can go to Publix grocery store and buy jalapenos, Serrano, pablanos, orange habanero, green and red peppers any day. I could also buy cayenne pepper and crushed red peppers off the shelf. Now if I couldn’t buy any peppers I would have to rethink my choices to include the jalapenos and Serrano.

2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 thin sliced fresh apple (sweet kind)
½ tsp Turmeric seasoning

This is one of my favorite sauces. It doesn’t stay around too long before everyone eats it up.

Trinidad Scorpion HOT Sauce

Ingredients:

3 Trinidad Scorpions, Chopped
1  15 oz can Peaches
¼ cup of honey or cane syrup
¼ cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup Raisins
1 cup Onion; minced
4 cl Garlic; minced
1/2 t Turmeric
1/4 cup vinegar

Directions:

Bring everything to a boil together in a pan; lower heat and simmer 5 min. puree in blender. It has a sweet but HOT flavor, good for most any meats, fish, eggs, etc.

I love this and the Butch T Hot Sauce. You can change out the fruit to apples, pineapple, Mangos, oranges, pears, etc. Try one batch with honey the other with cane syrup, slightly deferent flavors.

Peppers and More Peppers

I’m upto about 40 different kinds of peppers now. Why I’m unsure but I think it’s some type of addiction. I’ve not harvested the first pepper yet but I bet I’ve bought $150 worth of pepper seeds. Most of the are of the hotter types, Scorpions, Carolina Reaper, Habaneros (orange, red, yellow, white), Ghost Peppers, Scotch Bonnet, Devils Tongue, Birds eye, Thai, Vietnamese, Tepins, Santaka,  Jamaican Hots, Serrano, Hot Wax, Fatali, Cayenne, Tabasco, Yellow Scorpions, etc. I really do have over 40 types not counting the bell peppers. I guess I’m going to be a pepper growing fool this year so if anyone wants to bring the beer over and eat some peppers let me know…
