Something about slowly grown cherry tomatoes … holy smokes, what flavor. Salad dressing from fresh lemons?
Garden Salsa / Burrito Filling
Collection of sweet and hot peppers, cut into rough dices including seeds and webs
Equal or slightly short volume / amount of Roma tomatoes, diced.
White onion diced – a quarter fraction or less of the combined above volume. (Yellow onion is sweeter and less present as a flavor if preferred…)
Crush the ingredients in a bowl with a spoon or pestle, or pulse / combine in a blender / food processor. (Blending down into a sauce isn’t crazy.)
Add dashes / small amounts to taste. Balance for use:
Chili powder (cayenne)
Lime & Lemon juice (we use Meyer lemons if they’re ready on our tree. Sweeter.)
Garlic, crushed finely
Fresh Cilantro, chopped
Slivers of green onion, teeny amount of crushed mint
Red Turmeric – deepens color
Red pepper flakes (if cooking as a sauce will follow, to correct spice levels – add black beans, heat through and immediately spoon over rice.) 2nd day – Goes great with chicken or pork. Add an avocado garnish and some sour cream. Burritos with lettuce or Arugula.
Different tomatoes (watch juice levels)
Different onions / aromatics…
Fresh horse radish
Fallow seasons and closed building were intended to kill various pests (insects and plants.)
In an area the City of Bandon disturbed a year ago, we cleared more brush and have added a gap … there are two loops to walk in our eastern area we call the “Fen” and “Deer Park.”
Like: maybe use something a little less industrial than the hedge trimmer to control the growth?
… if you put lettuce on a ham, egg & cheese muffin – does that make it lunch?
Plants are growing so fast in the Glaedengarden.com greenhouse that even dragonflies need be wary. Here’s a victim of our carnivorous cucumber. Fake news? Or can you think of a better explanation? ;o)
Volunteers that popped up late summer 2017, slow growth over winter, so leaves are small & plants are short — during summer they’ll get 5 ft tall even outside. We’ve also had plants overwinter outdoors. Tough guys! I need to learn more about how these plants affect bees that visit; nicotinoids are very toxic to them. (BTW, those are shallots in the background, not weeds, but plenty of cleanup is overdue!)
How about a tortilla chip and a drip of hot sauce? After A wee kitchen project on Martin Luther King Day in Bandon… What I’m having.
Glaedengarden season’s end filtered serrano pepper sauce.
So…. There’s Tabasco, which is pretty good, aged and stuff like that, right? Well this sauce is excruciatingly fresh.
One of these will go and become our “Pastor’s Personal Pepper Preparation” sauce.
