September 2011 Fireside Chat

Welcome to our version of the off topic thread. As we end Summer and begin Autumn, we set our sights on what is to come. School starts, so kids are at play. It gets cooler, so we change our wardrobe. Harvesting of peppers is in full bloom and will continue right on through November. Time to get the funk out, and put something spicy together.

The Fireside Chat is our little spot where we deal with anything off topic. Come ask questions. Feel free to talk about your peppers, your products and anything you want to talk about that would be considered family friendly to those that might stumble upon it. Treat people like you want to be treated. Hopefully with respect as if they were a member of your kin. Any attack upon another will not be tolerated, and will be dealt with abruptly with cattle prods and inflated whoopie cushions. Really, please do not blast anyone unless it is done in a playful, friendly way. Thank you. Now go have fun!

    Does anybody know where I can buy single fresh hot peppers? The only one I could find was Jolokia, which I got one for $2 shipped. I asked on ebay, but they only sell 10 or more of each. I was looking to try Fatalii, Yellow 7 Pot, Butch T Scorpion, etc.

    Only at local farmer’s markets as far as I know of. Maybe you can ask Jim Duffy to send you some. See Refining Fire Chiles web banner to left.

    Thanks. I looked on his site, he only has dried Butch T Scorpions listed. I might get those if he doesn’t sell the fresh pods. I don’t think we have any farmer’s markets around here and I’m sure they wouldn’t be selling superhots anyway.

    If you were close enough to go to the Bowers Festival, you can pick your own peppers right from the pepper fields. $3/ pound was the price last year, and they had everything.

    So far I got one Bhut Jolokia from localharvest and one Yellow 7 Pot from thehotpepper coming. I’m going to try one of each until I figure out my favorites, then order more.

    Has anyone tried Cajohn’s Red Savina sauces? There are 5 of them, which one is best? I ended up ordering Ignite. Ignite and Caboom sound really similar, except one lists tomatoes and the other one lists tomato paste. Then Krakatoa and Red Savina Puree sound really similar. And then there is the Ace (HDH) sauce which has the Chile Caribe, whatever that is. It was hard to pick, but Ignite sounded the best.

    Im not sure that I would use ebay for those types of peppers, I have heard some horror stories from some folks over on the hot pepper. I have some Red Fatallis, Red 7 Pots and Butch T’s that will be ripe within the week though. :_thumbsup:

    Hi. I didn’t end up ordering from ebay since they make you get 10 or more. I don’t want to do that until I figure out my favorites. I bought the Yellow 7 Pot from a guy on thehotpepper and the Bhut Jolokia and Trinidad Scorpion from Wayland Chiles on localharvest.org, he didn’t say if it was Butch T or not, but it’s red in the picture.

    I have his Savina Puree and it’s really good.I love using it in salsaa or even a few spoonfulls in cooking pasta sauce.His jolokia puree is good also.As for a strictly red savina hot sauce a cheaper one that I like a lot is Melindas Red Savina.At WOF last year they 3 for $6.I loaded up on the Savina and jolokia sauces. :_thumbsup:

    Thanks. I was wondering about his purees, I always wanted to try one. I’m really into fresh peppers lately, and I bet a puree would taste just as good.

    Refining Fire Chiles has a ton of different dried peppers on his site now. I bought the Butch T Scorpions & Bhut Jolokia. But he’s got several different 7 Pots, I’m not sure the difference between them, he’s got Jonah, Douglah, and Barrackapore. Does anybody know how to store these and how long they keep? You probably can’t freeze them, right?
