Things have been a bit crazy with my job so no updates lately but I'll try to be better.
The Habanero Gold is AMAZING! Our jelly is a little too 'jelled' but the flavor is amazing so we'll definitely be making more. Since the red bell peppers are getting a little scarce, I think I'll make it with some of the red Aji Dulce peppers and use a combo of the Lemon Drop peppers with the Habaneros. We used some in some mango salsa we made and it worked great. The mangos weren't the greatest and not juicy at all so I mixed in some of the HG and it worked really well. And it's heaven on toast with cream cheese!
Last night we roasted a couple of pans of red bell peppers, peeled them and stuck them in small bags for the freezer. I've got some cucumbers sitting in some salt tonight so we can make Curry Pickle Slices tomorrow. And today we sorted through our garlic to see how much we'd have to plant and culled out the smallest bulbs to make pickled garlic with. We put up 4 half cup jars today.
I've got several quart bags of hot peppers in the fridge so I'll need to put some of them up tomorrow. Plus I've got more cukes to pickle and some zucchini to blanch! Thank god there's no football game! :-P
