Chilebrown at home

Friday, October 10, 2008



The Chilebrown garden has a bounty of late produce. One pepper stands out. It is the Bhut Jolokia.The Bhut Jolokia is the new pepper of choice in the "Pepper Community". It is supposed to be five time hotter than the Habanero. The origin of this pepper is from India. I bought 3 plants from Cross Country Nurseries It is a beautiful plant. It is a long season growing plant. You need 150 days to mature the plant to harvest a pepper. That is a long four months in' Bay Area Speak''; I had good results with one of my plants that was by the sunny side of my house in a pot. What should I do with them.?

When is the last time you ate a Habanero? They are fruity Hot.The Bhut Jolokia is similar. If you can survive the burn you will be rewarded (?) with a fruity,floral type flavor. We did a taste test and the results are here. Now is the time to use them in a sauce.

  1. 1 tsp salt
  2. 1/4 cup vinegar
  3. 1/8 cup Worcestershire
  4. 1 cup water
  5. 1 tsp salt
  6. 1 small onion chopped fine
  7. 3 cloves garlic chopped fine
  8. 1 tablespoon chile powder
  9. 4 tomatoes peeled and chopped
  10. 1/8 cup molasses
  11. 4 BHUT JOLKIA Peppers chopped
  12. 2 cloves garlic
  13. 2 tablespoons butter

Take the butter and simmer the onions and garlic. Add the the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 45 minutes. Let cool slighty and run through a sieve.

These are all approximations. I cannot tell you the precise measurements. The Reverend Biggles has sworn me to not tell the exact amount's. This concoction was simmered for 45 minutes and then put through a strainer. Let's just say a little dab will do you. I did a taste test with some Beef Ribs. I smoked them in the Smokenator 100. I put some sauce on the last half hour. I only put Biggles Bucktooth Revenge on one rib. I had to feed Ms.Goofy. and she was not to happy about the Beezlebob sauce.

Biggles Bucktooth Revenge is the bomb. I have taken a couple of chomps off of the rib. I cannot feel half of my mouth. I think there is a lot of flavor involved. This sauce is not for the indivual who will Poo, Poo at heat levels. This is a sauce for the Ages. This sauce is for the Cookies, Zoomies,Pragmatics,Bunrabs,Slim Pikins,Dagny's, Liteluvr's and the Sour Doughs of the Cyberworld.!

Mojo grabbed a bite of rib that fell on the floor. He is okay. It took awhile!

Mojo is OK?

The bottled chile sauce guy at the market Thursday didn't have any habanero sauce, but he said he'd bring some on Sunday. We'll get a couple. You coming?

I cannot make it Sunday. Are you sure he is there on Sundays. If you would pick up two bottles, I would be eternaly grateful.
Dr. Biggles and Zack are coming over to try the Sauce on some Hot (I do mean Hot) Wings.

I was surprised he said he'd be there Sunday. Never fear; you are covered.
Happy wings.

Um, the sauce was more than really good, just got up from meat coma. Pulled my stremfs together and edited the images I shot, all should enjoy.

The sauce was surely hot, but the flavors are worth doing, even if you only have a habanero or 4. I was sent home with a nice jar full, I can hardly wait!
