Chile Pepper Season

Chile Pepper Season

10 comments

Just before it frosted in my Maryland zone 7 garden, we harvested all of the chiles that were mature--and some that were still green. Many chiles were snipped from the plants into buckets, however, some plants covered with small chiles were just pulled up by the roots and hung to dry. Been processing them by various methods and have saved some out in the refrigerator to bring to the IHA Conference in Florida next week.

Habanero Shrub

Our friend Marion Spear is the queen of shrubs. She makes them from all kinds of fruits and introduced us to chile pepper shrub. Yeehaw! Besides as a sipping beverage to clear the throat before singing, she uses them on ice cream, as a beverage with cream (rather like a syllabub), with whipped cream as a pie filling and in a multitude of other ways. If you can tolerate foods that have the characteristic capsaicin burn, you will find this shrub an invigorating, delicious tonic. The honey balances and subdues the heat without totally extinguishing it. I use this whenever I feel a sniffle, cold or sore throat coming on.
