In 2012 my sister and her Husband got me a Trinidad Scorpion Pepper seed kit in a can. Now its spring 2013 and this blog will document my trials as I attempt to grow, harvest, and prepare fire peppers.
Sometime near the end of summer of 2012 I took an interest in Fire Peppers. My sister had just bought a new house and the previous owners had left behind two huge Pequin Pepper bushes also known as 'Bird Peppers'. I like spicy food so I was excited to try the pepper. I was so surprised that something I could just pick ... right off the plant.. right in the back yard could taste so good. It was so spicy! My sister and her husband helped me pick every last ripe pepper left on the bushes. I rushed inside when we were done, hopped on my laptop, and bought a dehydrator. I headed home with a mission. This flavor had to be preserved. After some amount of toil and good amount of pain I had created Pequin Powder. It had a great smokey flavor and a mean bite. To me the powder tasted like the hottest Cheez-ITs ever made and that was awesome. Later in the year my sister and her Husband got me a Trinidad Scorpion Pepper seed kit in a can. I couldn't do anything then but wait. Now its spring and this blog will document my trials as I attempt to grow, harvest, and prepare fire peppers.
