The wife makes hot pepper jelly every year
She spreads it over cream cheese on crackers

 My sister in-law grew me some ghost peppers last season . 4 x hotter than a habinaro  pepper.  I made up a jar from 32 peppers. Its good. This year she grew me Carolina reapers 4 x hotter then the ghost pepper. Have not tried them yet.

 As hot as the ghost peppers are I can just taste a little hot and mostly a sweet taste. . Apparently my taste buds are shot!!

^^^ LOL ^^^^....likely all those years eatin road kill and drinking shine....lmao 

Bet a little bit of that stuff would be good added to chicken wing sauce...or hot nachos !!

 

Does she grow the peppers outdoors steve ?

...I tried them 8 or 9 yrs ago...(habinaro)..nothing came of them at all. Figured my soil was no good or we're too close to the salt water to grow em.

Gonna have to try again next year I guess. Maybe the ghost ones ;)

Kevin they were grown in Ottawa Outside. Weather here they will most likely never grow here.

Ghost pepper plant was about 6 ' tall 300-400 peppers she said.

 Reaper .... she didn't said how tall  but had 150 peppers.

Well, another pickling season pretty well in the books for us !

 

Since last Friday we've been at this constantly. Normally start 630 ish and go till supper time...the odd time going beyond.

Don't know how my wife puts up with it (( ME.. LOL )) esp doing the same thing every year...annnnd, all she likes is the strawberry jam !!!! ohmy.png  laugh.png

 

Took her for breaky Sunday morning, then made a run to Withrow's and filled the trunk. happy.png

" Soooo, THAT'S why you took me out for breakfast " she said...lmao rolleyes.gif

..gawwwd love her. She washed the same big bowls, 3 different stock pots, ladel spoon, wooden spoons, funnel, and measuring cups and spoons 100 times. Finally, around 9:30 Sunday night we finished what we were doing...lol

 

I got a few more stragglers to do up, but the big crunch of it is done !

 

Think I'm going to try some more dilled baby carrots and definitely more dilled string beans....possibly a few more beets and one more batch of B&B pickles.

The way my family enjoys them, I'd say I'll be doing a few more of em for sure  wink.png

 

Got my marmalade, blueberry and strawberry jams done...8 batches total.

24 - 250 ml bottles and 12 - 500 ml bottles 

 

18 bottles of beets done, ( 6 more to do)

 

16 bottles of mustard pickles (summers end chow)

 

12 bottles of B & B pickles [ 24 more bottles for my DIL's dad rolleyes.giftongue.png]  ( 8 more to do)

 

16 - 1L bottles of dill pickles...12 - 750 ml dill pickles...4 - 500 ml, and a few 500's of carrots 

 

16 bottles of green tomato chow.

 

8 bottles of sweet mix ( onions / pickles / yellow peppers )

 

Sunday after we came back from Withrow's, we did 12 bottles of beets and 16 bottles of mustard pickles for my neice too...lol

 

The house never smells soooo good as it does in chow season !!!

I did some eggs and polish last year and will be doing more this year. Not much just two bottles of each

Finding 1 gallon jars was just about impossible so if you are going to do it start looking for them now at least that was my experience

 Cheers

Thank you for the kind offer but I am OK now

I did exactly as you say and had a restaurant in sydney save me some over 6-8 months . I have 10 stashed now plus the four which will do me but they were not something I had an easy time finding

 Cheers

Pickling season is here !!!!!!

 

Time to revive this thread...LOL

 

Got a great start on friday afternoon...first three batches of B & B pickles done. Yesterday we got 4 more batches done...B & B are FINNITO for 2020 !!

 

Just finished peeling 9 garlic bulbs for todays task...my dill pickles !!

I have a 4 1/2 yr old helper today...she loves my dill pickles and she wanted me to show her how it's done. She's gotta help me get the dill outta my garden later on..prep the heads, then she can add the fresh heads, garlic and the rest of the dry ingredients to the jars. 

 

She definitely wants more string beans and baby carrots dilled...all the girls absolutely love them !!

 

What about the rest of you guys/gals...anything started yet ??? 

 

please chime in so the rest of us can stay tuned.......

did up some mustard beans yesterday - 1st time for me doing them so see how they turn out.

 

did some refrigerator style B&B pickles a cpl weeks ago - lots of demand for those.LOL. And did up some beets same day - always shove a cpl cinammon sticks in some of the jars just to mix things up. Should have another crop of beets ready to harvest in a few weeks.

 

Also, did up a bunch of sweet cherry preserve a few weeks back when the price (of cherries) wasnt too bad.

Gary...do you mash and simmer/boil the cherries for just the juice, or do you use the pulp too ??

Beets another month

yep - boil

yep- use the pulp

 

its a preserve recipe so not a jam or jelly. Use it for topping on yogurt, ice cream, oatmeal, etc.

 

here's the recipe - we didnt use as much sugar, as in recipe, cause the cherries were super sweet.

My grand daughter and I just finished the last of my Dill Pickles 20 mins ago. made it a 2 day job (extra sleep overs are great wub.png wub.png ...plus, ...I ran out of pickling cukes rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif  so I went and grabbed another 20 lb this morning. We got 38.. 1 liter bottles done and 6...500 mils for this year !!

Hopefully should be enuff to keep the "dill wolves" at bay  wink.png wink.png

 

DAMMMMMMMMMMMMMM....but it's hot doin this stuff wacko.png

 

next will be my blueberry jam, then one of my favs with fish cakes..my green tomato chow, wub.png I usually do 10 - 500 mils (2 batches),

then it'll be onto my beets  20-25 lb..then some dill baby carrots and string beans...prolly a case of 500's .and lastly my mustard chow (we've always called them pickles) but David G told me that he knows it as "years end chow"...makes perfect sense to use up...what ever was left in the gardens at that time of year {{ cukes, onions, cauliflower, green & red peppers and the spices}}

It's also one of the favorite staple's all year long for me & the clan.

My kitchen reeks of fresh dill...can't get a much better deodorizer...LOL
