Pickling chillies.
« on: June 10, 2021, 03:24:20 AM »
Start of Winter here, so picking the last of the Chillies for the season. (apart from the Rocoto that are still flowering  ??? )

"Traffic Light" Jalapenos, and Rocoto relish so far. Hasn't been a good season for the super hots, but the hardier varieties have come though.

@Ianab What's your recipe/procedure for canning the peppers?
The recipe for the relish is here. 
Hot Pepper Relish Recipe - Chili Pepper Madness

That gets chopped fairly fine and cooked for ~30 mins then bottled. That mix is made with Rocoto chillies which have a heat between Cayenne and Habanero, but have thick juicy flesh more like a capsicum. You can use whatever you feel like, and mix it up for colour and heat, use some sweet peppers etc. 

The pickled Jalapenos are basically done like you would gherkins. Sliced and blanched in the vinegar / sugar / salt mix for about 2 minutes. Add some garlic or other spices to suit and bottle them. 

The other sauce I make is a tomato / onion / apple chutney (again with the vinegar / sugar solution to preserve). This is a good mild sauce on it's own, but you can add in as much chilli as you want. Only takes about 3 Ghost Chillies to spice up a gallon of sauce. That gets cooked for an hour or so then food processed to make a pour-able sauce.  

Basically it's about getting the pH low enough to "pickle" them so they keep. 

Probably not too late to grow some if you can pick up some decent size plants at a garden centre?
