    Thai peppers

    The term "mirasol" refers to any variety of peppers whose pods grow erect. Those are usually thin-walled and they dry well. They also pickle well. The heat level varies from one type to another but generally it's a quick and bright heat.

    Little pocket scale for accuracy

    I got a similar scale to weigh out ground meat for making patties of uniform size. European recipes usually measure by weight instead of by volume.

    Habenero Hot sauce

    Once I visited a guy in the hot pepper biz, he had several large home-made habanero drying ovens (kilns?) in his basement and the whole house smelled like habs. It was wonderful.

    Checking your thermometers!

    I've seen that at room temperature. Three digital thermometers next to each other, giving three different readings. Recently my main thermometer failed, so I got the spare out of the basement where it's always 73 degrees. I brought it upstairs where it was also 73 degrees. I heated a mug of...

    DaWeber is a rescue 1990 enjoying a second life with me. I've made seversl modifications to it, including cutting the OEM grate in half. One reason for this is shown here. First, the grate can easily be cut by three snips with bolt cutters. A hacksaw would work. Then, you should enlarge the...
