Sure - a good glug - cover everything on the tray - probably about two tablespoons.


Hot smoke - I have a small Bradley Smoker, it heats up like an oven (to about 150 degrees) and smokes at the same time. You can get those Tin fish smokers from The Warehouse/Fishing stores - they are hot smokers. TO smoke in one of them for 75 minutes, you'd need to re-light it and add more woodchips (or do it for less time - the key is to get the smoke flavour AND cook the ingredients). I think last time I made it, I only smoked for about an hour. It was fine.


I sterilise the bottles in the oven, and try and fill them when still hot - fill right to the rim, trying not to overflow, then cap while still hot. Means I can store out of the fridge.


I use the bottles that Mutti Italian Passata comes in and I also got some labels made up (Vistaprint), just because :)

Not sure what you mean by "standard long" chillies. But at that price for the Countdown ones I suspect you're meaning the large, sweet ones with virtually no heat not the Bird's eye?


But most Asian supermarkets will have them. What area of Auckland are you in?



No, I mean a standard Red Chili (not the Capsicums that look like Massive Chilies).


They aren't particularly hot, compared to a Scotch Bonnet. I'm not sure if they are called Birdseye (I thought they were smaller and hotter). 


About 10cm long I suppose.



Ah, right. They're not very hot. The Bird's eye chillies are commonly used in Thai dishes - small (no bigger than a .22 round).


A mate grew the Carolina Reapers last year. They are unbelievably hot, as you'd expect from the world's hottest chilli. Just a nibble sends your tongue into spasm haha.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
- John Stuart Mill

Growing chilis isn't that difficult. I raise each year 4-5 Chilis on the balcony (slugs won't travel that distance upwards), each producing approx. 50-70 Chilis during the summer/autumn. Best for smoked chilis are Mexican Serrano and Jalapeno spezies (Chipotle). If you like it very or super hot, go for Habanero or Rocoto. I dry excessive chilis and make chili powder for BBQ or put them into the freezer.
