Habaneros Anyone?

These are some of the habs that a fellow at my work has been donating to me over the past few days. Apparently he has a plant almost as large as I am that produces masses of these angry little buggers, so many that he can't give them away. Well... I changed that. haha!

I made a pot of what we've dubbed "Angry Nosebleed Salsa".. since it literally gave our friend Greg a nosebleed. I plan on making a few more batches of it up and jarring it... giving it to unsuspecting friends. MUAHAHAA.

I've also tossed several into the freezer... with unkown future destinations.

I am also drying out a bunch.... Dave naively took a nibble off the tip of one of the dried ones thinking the process might mellow their fury.... hehe. That was fun. I'm hoping to harvest some seeds from some of the dried ones as well... so I can grow my own shrub of death.

Another plan I have... that I am hoping to tackle in the next week.. is to make a blueberry habanero sauce.

Gonna pickle some too....

I'm starting to feel like the Bubba Gump of Habaneros. Pickled habaneros, blueberry habaneros, habanero hot sauce, dried habaneros, habanero salsa....

holy cow they look angry just sitting in the bowl. I can do hot I cannot do angry hot. I remember once sister and I were in Sedona and she had an unsuspecting teeny taste of a habanero something. Not good!!!
How's the house sale going?

that's like a weapons grade amount of habaneros. do you have to have a license to possess that much?

Yikes! I can take some hot but not those evil things. I hope you wore gloves.

doodles they are VERY angry habs! The nastiest I've ever tried for sure! when I made my salsa, I accidentally inhaled the minced onion, garlic and (2!!) habaneros and my nose started burning!!
house sale... eh.... no bites =(

maltese- I really think you should have a license to possess this much! And its funny because the thought did run through my mind that I should keep a jar of a pur mince of the stuff and use it as a weapon if anyone were to break in hehehe

jeff- I have no idea what king of dehydrator it is! lol someone at work gave it to me and its so old there is no label on it anywhere!

I think I could do with some of that as a decongestant right now. Even the hottest english mustard isn't helping me today!

My Dad would absolutely love that salsa. He eats scotch bonnet peppers raw as a beer time snack.
