A very nice mix. Love the color variation.

What do you have planned for your harvest beside munching? More sauce, powders, freezing?

RE: First true Harvest 2012 season

Habanero going to sauce and flakes, Scorpion's maybe sauce also, sweet peppers eat raw or stir fry. 7pot already have sauce so that will go to powder, jalapeno quick pickle yummy, Ghost sauce. Any leftover will go in the freezer.

Impressive harvest Mark. I see a lot of heat in your future. Hopefully you'll have several more of those before you have to shut it down for winter.

Looks great, I can't wait. I'm just seeing the 1st ripening of a ghost. It cooled way down here Friday night and I think that triggered it.

RE: First true Harvest 2012 season

I just looked through pics of years past, and I don't have my first harvest until October....
waiting is the hardest part! :-D

Yeah, I agree Josh waiting is the hardest especially if you have plans for what you want to do with the ripe pods.

Here is a shot of my Fatali

You're getting pretty well stocked there!

The Fatalii is darker than I expected.


 o
RE: First true Harvest 2012 season

Those red habs look extra tasty! Nice sauce stockpile, do you buy new bottles or just recycle store bought hot sauce bottles?


 o
RE: First true Harvest 2012 season

habjolokia : those Fatali's look like what was suppose to be habs that i grew that i posted pics of...are they super hot? i took some thai chilis and a few of the "habs" fatali's into work and 4 ppl decided to try the hab/fatalis and every one of em was on fire close to puking cus they were so hot...was pretty funny..looking good!

RE: First true Harvest 2012 season

@ tsheets yeah darker than I hoped, ingredients and cooking process made it come out darker the yellow did not hold it's color as I would have liked. Maybe if I had added mango it would have had a better chance.

@Peppermeister1 the 7pot with black lid is recycled all the red cap bottles are new could not beat the price 12 bottles for under $4.

@kells.00 They are very hot but not like the 7pot or Bhut but had my Wife sample the fatalii sauce and she went for a drink fast. I sampled and it was very hot but I did not need anything to chase it down, good flavor and nice heat makes a great sauce.

RE: First true Harvest 2012 season

Thanks Jamie and tsheets! My season will be over soon, usually end of this month sometimes it can push through the first week of Nov. I have another harvest of Trinidad Scorps, Ghost, 7pot, fatali, Choc habs, Red habs, Billy goat, peppadew, and Jalapenos. Should harvest them next week.

Prob making a peppadew, Billy goat, and jalapeno hotsauce so I have one of each variety and hope I have enough sauce to last until next season lol or I raid the freezer for my frozen pods and whip up another batch.

RE: First true Harvest 2012 season

those sauces look good. Do you mind sharing your recipe? :)


 o
RE: First true Harvest 2012 season

Mark, sweet (in a figurative sort of way).

They say that you begin eating with your eyes, I can imagine how tasty that sauce is just by looking at it.
