How cool is that!!! I will definitely try it! Thank you for posting the Vid!
Sleeper nachos....Why sleeper?...Well jalapenoes are not that hot but these got a few zippy ones in the bunch i bought. What really made it though is my powder blend of mostly mildish peppers and just a tiny bit of ghost pepper powder. Most of the pepper powder is in the melted cheese.
I had some Nachos today as well, but mine didn’t look that good! I didn’t have any Jalapeño Slices, I Will be happy when i have Fresh ones, COME ON SPRING
Local market had them. These are salted lime i make up.
Slice jalapenos and add kosher salt...about 1-2 tsp for a pound
Let them set about an hour. Mix them up every 15min
They will release a bunch of liquid.
Remove them with a slotted spoon trying to let the liquid drain off some. Dont toss the liquid yet.
Add fresh lime juice to the jalapeno slices. About 1 lime and about half as much cider vinegar.
Mix it up and let it set another 30min then taste the brine.
Adjust with the salty jala juice and a little water according to your taste.
Finely minced red onion (optional)
Toss them in the fridge....better the next day and they will keep for atleast a couple weeks.
My new Rocotos were a BUST! DARN IT!! The seeds have been going about 2 full weeks now, i checked 1 for viability? It was Molded and no form of life? Just a Hull, i started going through some others, EVERY SINGLE seed was Moldy and no form of life in them? I had started some of my little Thai seeds along with the Rocotos, And every single seed came up in 7-8 Days. BUMMER on the Rocotos!! I won’t have any this year, I could always start some of my Mini Reds from Seed i saved last year, But not sure i will? I think i will Focus on the Zapotec Jalapeño’s and a Few of my other a Jalapeño Varieties. They are my Best bet here with our Short Grow season. I will get back after The Rocoto’s Next year
I'm sure y'all are familiar with the Scoville rating system for peppers, but have you heard of the Winter rating? Here's how it's done.
Fix your favorite butt-burning recipe and eat your fill. When nature calls, go out to the woods to relieve yourself. Count how many winters you can warm your hands over it.
To prevent mold on seeds you can use a peroxide and water solution. Rinse seeds after or soak in some plain water to soften the seed. Then plant. You can also use a weak solution to hydrate the jiffy pellets to cut down on mold.
This is why i like the paper towel method. Its very easy to inspect them for mold and sprouting. You are not wasting additional space or cubes either. My oven will stay in the mild 80s with just the oven light on. Any warm spot works like the back top of a refrigerator or even on top of a hot water heater if your basement isnt cold.
I wish i had done the paper towel method with these 2 new Rocoto variety Seeds, But i have had such great luck going straight to the jiffy pellets that I didn’t even think to try any other way? I stil might try and start a few of my Mini Red Rocotos from last year, i saved back plenty of seed from my Best few plants, As you seen The mini reds did REALLY well for me. I stil have plenty of time! The Mira Flores Market Rocotos did pretty darn good for me as well, But there was a very noticeable difference in the Mini Reds and the Mira Flores, The Mini reds outperformed them by a large Margin, The Mira Flores took longer, but finally Grabbed hold and took off. Gotta love this stuff!!!
This vinegar solution you speak of REALLY interests me, Mold is something i Have dealt with EVERYTIME with the Jiffy Pellets in the Green house Dome setup, I have wondered how the heck to combat it? How would you know the Ratio of vinegar to use? There has to be a fine line here, I have used vinegar to Kill weeds and it does a good job!
50/50 soak of Hydrogen Peroxide 3%/Water. Same stuff you get at most drug stores is 3%. Around 10min-15min is enough to kill anything on the seeds.
For the pellets its like a 1/4cup to 1 quart of water ratio and let them set for at least a few hours.
Trimmed back the girls again. One of these might be something else though. The 1 pod i got earlier was orange and fully ripe but the shape was just like a mini red. It was quite hot too.
They look REALLY GOOD!! Nice healthy looking plants!! I just picked up a tiny Jiffy dome (12 is all ) I am gonna try and Germinate some of my Mini Reds from last years Seed
They are a little bit leggy but i cant do anything about that yet. Had light snow today too right after that pic. The plan is to get them outside early even if i need to bring them inside at night. That way i might get early fruit before the night time temps get too high. They will probably get huge over the summer. Planning on putting them on the north side of the house when it gets hot. That side gets very little direct sun.
That sounds like a good plan, I had My Mini Reds in the Front of my house where they only got the first few hrs of Sunrise, After that they remained in the Shade the entire Day. When are you safe from last Frost?
We normally make it well into October before the first frost but most of my peppers wont produce that late because its too cold. Pretty much anything as hot as a habanero is done except a rocoto which can be close. I had lots of fresh jalapenos still on the plants at the start of October.
Bonnie Mucho Nacho are still really hard to beat and seedlings are common. I dont even bother starting them from seeds. They produce early and produce heavy. Early pods are a little milder but still good.
Must try hot sauce. No wimps though, this one will light you up.
Where do you get that Hot sauce at? Looks “Spooky” Hot!
I am soaking a Dozen of Mini Red Rocoto Seeds From last year, I might try the Paper towel Germination with these?
Amazon. Its about $11 a bottle. Regular price is around $12-13. Its stupid hot but a tad sweet so it fools you a little. My mouth is still on fire!!!!
