My first time making lemon habanero marmalade was a huge success. It’s an all-day process though, so don’t start making your own unless you have a day to devote to it.
A table condiment to similar in appearance to ketchup–but much more
pungent–sriracha sauce is named after a seaside town in Thailand.
Increasingly popular, this sauce is found on the tables of Thai and
Vietnamese restaurants all over North America. Fresh red chiles are the
key to the flavor of this recipe
Of course we have our own New Mexican version of pesto! It’s a topping for pasta but also can be added to soups, stews, and rice. Although we have specified cilantro in this recipes, you can use the traditional basil or even Italian parsley. Pecans, another New Mexican crop, can be substituted for the piñon nuts.
Only if you’ve done it right. Luckily, mixing All Spice Cafe’s Chipotle Garlic sauce with Karoun Kefir Cheese Labne worked extremely well. If it hadn’t, there’d be a new hole in my backyard. The sort of hole Joe Pesci bitched about having to dig in Casino, only without a snitch in it. The sauce packs a medium-sized heat and smoky flavor with garlic and tartness. Traditionally made by draining whey from slightly salted yogurt, Labne is a thick and creamy yogurt cheese that’s a healthier alternative to regular cream cheese. It’s also rich enough to be used as a substitute for sour cream.
Scary is a good descriptor for Amberyfre’s Scary Bloody Mary Sauce. Boldly flavored and seriously hot, this bottled lava is not for the faint hearted.
Oils are another great use for all those chile peppers you grew this summer. This Asian take is good to have on hand with noodles in my opinion.
I’m not a patient man unless it comes to barbecue. Even then, it’s an internal struggle between my personalities to keep myself from checking the smoker too often. Luckily, you don’t need patience to make good use of your chile harvest. Vinegars, oils, and extracts are all instant gratification for putting hot peppers to good use. This oregano-garlic green chile vinegar recipe is a good one, as are the others in this article.
