  • OT --- Birds eye pepper sauce

    Not shore how fare north the wild plants will grow. But hear it is time for them to start turning colors and are ripe. The recipe is simple pick enough to fill a jar half way up. I just recycle an old steak sauce bottle. And fill the bottle with warm (120f) vinegar. And what 1 month to ferment and you are dun. I still have some from 1995 you can throw it out when the peppers fall a part. This will make a tasty and hot salsa that you can use like Tabasco sauce. I use it on Chilly, Tamales, Summer sausage, Collard greens, you name it. Easy to spot the plant the peppers grow on the top or point up instead of hang like other peppers. I think they are also called Chillypapens.

        sandiapanl Do you propagate the plants or dig up wild ones and trans plant. They are very hard to grow from seed and would like to know your secret for starting from seed.

          I have those growing all over my yard, here in San Antonio.
          They're delicious raw, and even better pickled.
          Hotter than Jalapenos, too.
          I thought they were called Chile Pequins ??????
          Whatever they are, they're GOOD.

            I have a friend down in Laredo that sent me a bunch of those. He didn't have to transplant anything. The birds did it for him

            Edit, BTW they do not grow in Illinois

                  How do I arrange to get some of those seeds sent up here. While it IS the Frozen North, we can grow Habenaros and Jalepenos here. The bird chilies used to grow at my back door in Kenya. The birds loved them. African Grey parrots are particularly fond of chilies, and apparently dont find them hot. Duffy

                    I have heard that the wild turkeys’ will eat the peppers and then you can not eat the meat it is to hot . I don’t know that for sure but sounds plausible. Growing the peppers from seed can be tricky most people just trans plant. I would be willing to send you the seeds just tell me how you would like them prepared.

                      Birds aren't equipped to feel the burn. I've been at war with some mocking birds to keep them out of my Tabasco peppers for the last two years. Grow those little peppers on the deck then just drop them in an old Jack Daniels bottle with some salt and vinegar. Let them age for at least a month before you get into it. The fresh ones are about 12x more damage than the sauce you get at the store. I decided to sample a fresh one -- once.

                      I find a single Habanero chopped and dropped into a medium pot with a pound of peanuts and 3/8 cup of salt is about right for the spectators. I'm partial to more, but SWMBO insists on getting a portion.

                          i have a lot of those growing.

                          i usually make a sauce with whateve the fruit that is handy
                          last sauce was
                          pepper and lime
                          bitter orange
                          banana
                          peach
                          mangoe

                          i have dried them and put them in oil
                          likewise smoked them

                          you can also put them inwith whatever alcohol is around, i have them in whiskey, rum, sherry, port, vodka

                          the alcohol/pepper goes well in a soup /stew

                            Boiled. Yeah, I should have noted water was included.

                              transplanting peppers

                              Just a thought, could those peppers be using the birds digestive system to transplant the seeds? The passing through the system may change the way they sprout????
