fresh chilis from South Dakota

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey all..
Been a while since I posted (seems like I've been busy with work, kids and camping) anyway, my uncle in South Dakota has a new hobby...some would call it gardening...I'd call it farming?!



He planted a bunch of different chili's and peppers (among everything else?) he shipped my 5 boxes and is ready to ship me 5 more!

He sent the following types (or as near as I can tell?)
* Serrano
* Jalapeño
* Anaheims
* Cherry peppers
* Scotch Bonnet (Capsicum chinese)
* Pablano
* Yellow Peppers
* Cayenne (although green, so maybe not ripe?)
* Tabasco (made a mean salsa)
* Purple and yellow pepper (not sure of name, but tastes great)
* Hungarian Wax Peppers
* Banana Peppers
* Unknown 2-3 other varieties?

He's gonna double check all his plants for type so I can cross reference!

Here are some pics...I have 2 more 10-15# boxes in the downstairs fridge to sort...either way most are getting smoked, dried and bottled.










Ciao,

~Brett

I'd say he's grown on me as I've gotten older! He's always been very generous...in every way!

I smoke 'em at 140*F for about 8 hours then dry them (In the TEFS) for about 24-30 hours, depending on type of pepper...end up with different type of chipotle...
