That's one productive plant Astronuc! I had a whole row of habanero plants this year. If they had all produced like that, I'd have enough relish made up for 3-4 years.

That was a great plant. I wish I knew how I did that. It was one of 4 and the only one to take off like that! This year, I had 4 plants, but some critter (probably deer) ate the tops and they never recovered.

I once had 4 tomato plants that produced shopping bags of large tomatoes. We had so many tomatos, we had to give away bag fulls. They produced well into November, and IIRC into December!

I am going to attempt to make my own salsa now! I have finally reached a point where I just need salsa all the time!

I don't know which one to pick. Any suggestions?

Here you go! Just scale it down so you can make small batches and experiment. If you decide to add cilantro, tear the leaves and stir them into the salsa just after you're done cooking it. Keep your recipes simple, but don't be afraid to tinker with them.

This recipe works well for green tomatoes and red ones, or a mix of the two.

I got some Dave's Insanity for valentines day. I don't know if any of you have had that stuff, but I swear the scoville count on that is more than my habaneros.

So I tried some on my finger and it was really fun .

I have a collection of Dave's sauces and one jar of relish. It's OK. I believe Dave's is based on habaneros. The thing to remember is that the hot sauces are a solution of the capsaicin, so it reacts readily with the tissue it contacts. If one chews on a habanero pepper, there is a delayed reaction because the capsaicin has to be released from the plant cells. If one takes the ribs of the habanero pepper and purees them, and then places that on the tongue, one gets an immediate reaction.

Well. I think that its more than habaneros because it doesn't say that it is habaneros in the ingrediants. It just states, hot peppers, (something else about peppers that I can't remember), and pepper extract, then a few other things.

So is taking the ribs from the pepper and pureeing them how you make extract? Because I would enjoy using that much more than chili powder.

I've been using turbo's relishes to improve Bread & Butter pickles. I take a jar of B&B pickles and then place a few tablespoons worth of turbo's relish in the jar. The hot pickles are great.

Yesterday, I mixed turbo's relish with some pickle relish to make some hot relish. Also very good!

I have made bread and butter pickles and dill pickles with chilies in them, and last summer, I pickled a big batch of jalapeno rings and garlic using my standard dill pickle recipe (but with no cucumbers). Man! are they good! I think I'll use those on my sandwich tonight - we're making grilled tuna-melt sandwiches with home-made tomato soup for supper.

Yep! The dill-pickled jalapeno rings were fantastic on the grilled tuna-melt sandwich. For anyone who hasn't made these, butter two slices of rye bread and place them butter-side down on a hot skillet. Add sliced cheese to one piece of bread and top with mustard. When the bread has browned and the cheese has melted, spread tuna salad on that slice, top with hot peppers (or pickles if you don't like hot stuff that much) and put the other slice of bread on top. With some home-made tomato soup, that sandwich is heaven.

During supper, my wife suggested that the dill-pickled jalapeno rings might go real well with sour cream on potatoes. We'll try that sometime soon.

I also remember some great jalapeņo poppers.

I had some left over spaghetti sauce, and several bottles of hot sauce that were just about empty, so I combined them all in the jar to make a really nice spicy tomato sauce.

Mmmm! Grilled jalapeno poppers. We'll have to make a big batch next time you're up. A recipe update for those who don't want to wander all over the thread:

- Slice fresh jalapeno peppers in half lengthwise.

- If you want 'em hot don't clean out the placenta and seeds. If you're going to be feeding some people who can't take the heat, remove the placenta and seeds and the poppers will be relatively mild.

- Crumble lots of crispy fried bacon and mix the crumbles bits into a bowl of cream cheese (you can experiment with spices and herbs, too)

- Fill the halved chilies with the cream cheese/bacon mix and top them with shredded Monterey Jack cheese.

- Put a sheet of aluminum foil on a very hot pre-heated grill, put the stuffed peppers on the foil and cook them to your preferred done-ness. I like to have at least some of the Monterey Jack browned for the flavor.


These poppers are sooo easy to make and they are addictive. Only the fat and calories keep us from making them more frequently.

That's terrible! You know the old saying "too much of a good thing". You need to go easy on that hot stuff, it can really aggravate your stomach if you are susceptible to getting an ulcer.

Once more for the record, peptic ulcers are believed to be caused by helicobacter, nowadays. Do not buy stress stories. Insist on a proper blood check. It's cureable with antibiotics and I'm most happy with that.l

Darn, MJ! Has your doctor prescribed a course of treatment? While spicy/acidic foods can inflame an ulcer and cause pain, these are symptoms and are generally not the cause of ulcers.

Ulcers are usually caused by a bacterial infection (Helicobacter pylori). There are relatively simple non-invasive tests for this infection, and treatment is pretty straightforward, as well. If your doctor has not performed diagnostic tests and prescribed a course of treatment, ask to be referred to a gastroenterologist. If you indeed have an ulcer, it needs to be diagnosed and treated properly. Good luck.

Edit: Oops! Andre jumped in while I was writing my overly-long answer, and he is absolutely right.

How hot are they, Woolie? If they are about as hot as a jalapeno, you use them in a lot of stuff. I like chopping jalapeno peppers, mushrooms, and onions, and sauteing them in butter with some garlic, then folding them into an omelet. Serve with salsa on the side.

They are also really good in shepherd's pie. Saute chopped chilies with onions and crushed garlic. Brown some hamburg with these vegetables, and season (salt, pepper, other spices to taste) and fill the bottom of a baking pan with the mix. Make up a spicy tomato sauce and pour that over the mix, then cover that with a layer of whole-kernal corn and a thin layer of very sharp cheese. Top all that with a layer of mashed potatoes, and bake until the potatoes have browned on top and the sauce is bubbling.
