Two New Pics

Photo 1 shows radishes that I harvested just this Wednesday 10/24. I am still harvesting late-seeded lettuce, spinach, and radishes.

Photo 2 shows three 2qt. jars of hot pepper mash for fermenting. Pepper mash photo was taken last week when fermentation was just beginning. Left jar contains Jamaican yellow mushroom/cocolate hab, center jar contains bhut jolokia, right jar contains dorset naga. All three jars contain various other fruits and vegetables as well. All the peppers and other fruits and veggies were from my home-grown harvests. In photo, left and right jars have fermentation airlocks. The center jar has had one installed since photo was taken. Fermentation is proceeding nicely in all of the jars.

Very nice! Just have to make sure hubby doesn't see this or he'll think "we" should do this too. Do you use it as a relish?

The idea is to use it as a hot sauce like Tobasco. Once fermentation is complete then it will be processed, strained, cooked, and bottled. What I like is that I do not have to use vinegar as an ingredient, so the true flavors really come out. The fermentation process adds its own flavor as well.

We will see how it turns out. Everything going good so far.
