Looks good. Last harvests are sad – We had our last climbing french bean harvest last weekend and some sweetcorn which I thought would come to nothing. But it persevered and gave us 6 cobs each, glad as I feared there would be none. It was scoffed very quickly, raw on the way home in the car, then in a haddock and corn chowder, delish.Marian (London UK)
It look awfully good Kathy! I still have some left in my greenhouse. Well it is a bit sad but the growing season of 2010 is almost over.
Those look great! Until next year!
Marian – that sounds delicious!
I'm going to put the red chiles on my ristra, but I'm wondering if I can add the green onea to a ristra. Does anyone know if the green ones dry?
Yes, everything here is coming indoors too -we are expecting a frost any day now. That's a fine bowl of chillis you have there. I string mine up with a needle and thread and dry them for Christmas decorations.
I'm not sure how the green chilies will look when dried but they should be usable. I had a string of very old and dusty dried chilies that I was about to discard when I checked on cures for unidentified pests chewing on my baby bush beans. The solution was a chili decoction with soap. It worked beautifully so I kept the spray bottle in my refrigerator for the season. I guess I'm saying it's worth drying the chilies even if they have no culinary purpose.
I think I will put the green ones in the oven on low for a little while as I'm not sure they will dry. Some of the websites I've looked at say the green ones are too immature to use. I'll experiment with a couple in the oven.
I also heard that a chile and oil and soap mix is good for pests. No pests left in my garden, so I'd rather eat my chiles.
