Chilli Harvest!


Usually we grow tomatoes up against a south facing wall. This year Michelle Styles very kindly gave us some chilli plants, so we have been growing those instead. Since they are not under glass (and were planted out a bit late) I left them out as long as possible, hoping we wouldn't get a sharp frost. Cue wind, lots of it. Rain, ditto. It is November. They were blown over, and had to be picked. My husband did this arrangement on the kitchen table with them before they were bundled up in groups and hung on the Irish dresser. Already they are beginning to ripen. Now I need some chilli recipes. Lots of chilli recipes! I was wondering if you could put a chillis in a bottle of olive oil to make chilli oil? Anyone know?
