The Habanero Thread

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey » Sat Sep 28, 2019 1:35 pm

A co-worker of mine threw habaneros into jars of pickles in order to make hot pickles. I like those a great deal. I bought some from the grocery store, for a dollar fifty seven I can get about two fistfuls of them.

Before we start with anything, I want to note that after a few days, the part of the habanero near the stem starts to go black. Is that mold? I assume it's mold.

I've been adding them to some Mexican "base" I've been making - black beans, a little cheese, green chile sauce and turkey. The habaneros that are the cheap ones listed above give it a kick that I can handle. I maybe hiccup once. This is pleasing. It makes me feel truly alive.

Denizens, what is your TAKE on the friendly, available, inexpensive habanero?

Depends on the food, sometimes it's totally necessary (tex-mex) and sometimes it's just a food crutch for bland or weak flavors. (Hockey nachos)
