flippin hell there I was hung over from yesterday's sorrow/flare drowning season and still feeling bloody miserable when I thought!, "I know I'll get all those ripe tomatoes and some of me greenhouse chilli's and a few herbs and make a nice warm pasta sauce.
Well the first ickle lickle chilli I tried is a tad, well limp in the heat department, so i tired another one and hey presto the flippin same. So on to my other bush of long green Mexican chilli's, same again!, so I cut it in half cut one up and in it went, the other I slit and dee seeded and cut that bugger up and that went in to, then like an **** I thought?, Hmmmm I wonder if the juice on the blade is hot, so carfully I smeared some on my finger and licked it, big bloody mistake, it's so far taken 30 minutes and my temples still ache.
The thing is I have two really big healthy bushes of them and a further two big Dorset Naga plants full of chilli's, it's going to be hot winter round here that's for sure.
Oh one last thing I may well be getting a share in a bee hive in our village, hmmm chilli honey do you think it would work!!?? :wink:

    I am envious. Who wants weak, limp, boring chilli's.

    I sympathise with you over your reaction to the chilli's. I burnt my lips with a boiling hot spoon and pulled all the skin off 2 days ago. I am still having trouble drinking and eating. I am having to dab with mouth ulcer liquid and that stings.

    Chilli honey sounds very interesting seeing as chilli chocolate goes well. You could start a new trend Mellman.

    Hi Mell

    I love chillis, but you do have to be careful when you cook with them. There's some good recipes for chilli sauces on this link.


    If you get a lot of chillis all ripe at the same time, you could make sauces and bottle them. They keep for about three months.

    The honey sounds good too, but I haven't heard of chilli honey. Maybe you have invented something new. It sounds like something Heston Blumenthal might be interested in. :D

    Don't scratch your bun, or take a pee until you have washed ok?

    Too late!!!!, no really alls well, oh Joan what I will do is freeze them then cut them when their still frozen, mind you those Dorset Naga are absolutely mental and can even burn your fingers when handling the buggers!.

    My uncle makes pickles and sometimes he pickles chillies. As for as a burning member have you tried dipping it in yoghurt :?: I have been told it helps.
