Habanero Sauce

I picked up some Habaneros at Rosemeade Market.  It's getting closer to Harvest time, and sauce making time, and I'm thinking I need to try making a Habanero Sauce.  I have, I think, three Habanero plants this year, so I think I will be doing this some more...
I am trying to keep this fundamental, simple.  Onion, Garlic, Salt, Vinegar, and lots of Habaneros...
Then saute them a while to soften them up.  It's pretty hard to hang around sauteing Habaneros...
Then everybody jumps into the turbo liquifier machine, and we get Habanero Sauce...
Hell Fire in a Condiment Dispenser.  Wherz the Breakfast Tacos...

Feeling the Heat

We're feeling the Heat here in North Texas.  Exotic Chiles love the Heat.  They really don't start to thrive until it gets up around 100F.  I've pruned some of my Chiles this year.  I don't usually do that, so it's a bit of an experiment.  I've harvested a few Caribbean Red Hots, and a couple Bhut Jolokias.
There are a few Cherry Bombs as well.  Over the last week I've prepared the plants for The Heat.  I pulled out all the ground cover plants, and put down a thick layer of mulch.  Also started watering heavily in the mornings.  I'm preparing the Chiles for massive vegetative growth so in the Fall they can make lots of Red Hots...
Scary Hot!  Ghost Pepper, really Bhut Jolokia...
Caribbean Red Hots are Red Savina Habaneros.

Bacon Double Cheezeburger

Sometims you just need a big ole chunk of Beef.  I took a half pound burger, sliced it in half, then added Habanero Jack, and Bacon inside.  It was difficult to eat the whole thing.

2018 Garden Shotz

Here are some shotz from the 2018 Garden.  I'm starting to get some Chiles.  The Hot Cherry Peppers are the first ones that are maturing, and they are hotter than I expected.
The Hot Cherry Pepper seems to be prolific in that they are fairly small, and producing a lot of Chiles.  These are great with Barbeque.  I've got a number of decoy plants around the Chiles like Radishes, Cabbage, and Kale.  By giving the insects something they like to chew on I am hoping they will leave the Chiles alone.
Over the last 10 years I have been pursuing an organic program, and have noticed there is a difference in the production of fruit.  So, this year I am continuing all the organic processes I have been using, but also supplementing with a mild chemical fertilizer, and I have noticed a difference.  The Chile plants have started producing Chiles earlier, and more of them.  There are two Poblanos already.
Also the Red Savina Habanero has a few Chiles on it.  Usually the really hot Chiles do not start producing Chiles until it gets really hot outside, like in August.  The nutrition of the plants is paramount to fruit production.  Light is another really important factor.  Fruit bearing plants need lots of light.  Last year we trimmed the trees considerably to get better light.
Sunday we we're out in the garden early to do some maintenance before the temperature got too high.  Harley was actually constructive in that out of all the things in the garden he chose to graze on the weeds...  Yay!  Good Puppy...

Grass fed Beefz

I usually don't buy the organic Grass Fed Beefz.  It is cost prohibitive for someone on a budget, could be twice as much.  So I found some this weekend, in the clearance case, and picked up a couple Grass fed Ribeyes.  Well, I'm making a post about it, so you can guess, here it comes...  Best Steaks EVAR...
Different smell, different taste, vibrant, delicious nomnomz...  I'm kinda blown away in much the same way I was when I went back to Wild Gulf Shrimp after eating the farm raised stuff.  Saturday I also found some Violet Grape Tomatoes, basically miniature Roma Tomatoes that made an awesome Tomato Salad.  The quick Pickles were just a whim because I found some Pickling Cucumbers.
The quality of our foods is very important.  Our foods provide the raw materials that our bodies use to replenish our cells as they wear out.  When you replenish your cells with inferior materials you loose ability.  Obviously this is leading to...  You need to supply your body with the best materials to have your full abilities.  While yes, at this time, superior materials are a little more expensive, it seems prudent to supply your cells with quality materials.
