What do you think of the Datil pepper? I had never heard of it before moving to Jax, FL, but I love the fruity taste without it being scorching hot. It makes great pepper jelly to serve with cream cheese. I also have a recipe for a pepper sauce that I make for a large part of my family.
Good looking garden. I'm trying to get my second plantings in here....... Too much going on.
The Matts were out of control, took over my yard and the neighbors, I had to cut them down and they were loaded, one was so sweet it threw me for a loop, I thought it was a grape. I may plant one next year with a sweet 100.
The Datils took off and are the only plant still growing along with the Tabasco and strawberries.
I wanted to make a Datil Barbecue sauce (Tomato Base) but already had so much going on.
I did make a Peach-Apricot, Datil sauce thats pretty dam good, I have three more hot sauces I'm working on and will post them when they're bottled.
You probably read this post but this was my last hoorah with my veggies.
Finished cooking all my eggplants into Lasagnas and sliced into portions and froze, ate my last mater yesterday
Made a heap of sun-dried maters and some tomato powder for a thickener.
Finished staining my other two beds, I only have one more to go, The Asparagus bed, but Ill do that in the spring when the plant has died back.
