Chicken and sausage jambalaya. Decided to try serving my jambalaya over a creole sauce. Worked out well.

I made a pot of gumbo this week and a few people asked for the recipe.  I thought I'd share it here as well.

Homemade Chili Powder

Made a small batch of homemade chili powder this afternoon (and the chili is on the stove!).  All the peppers used where homegrown except for the chipotle.  

2 dried chocolate fatalii peppers
2 dried jamaican habanero peppers
4 dried hinkelhatz peppers
2 dried chipotles
2 dried hot Portugal peppers
2 dried prik chi faa peppers
2 teaspoon oregano 
1 tablespoon cumin seed
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon smoked paprika

Place all ingredients in a coffee grinder and grind until powder (may take a few rounds since all ingredients likely won't fit).  Shake the grinder up and down while grinding to ensure large pieces are thrown back down into blades. 

When making chili with this powder, toast the powder before using.  (Warm a dry, non-stick pan on medium; add powder and toast for 3 minutes, shaking the pan often to toast it evenly.)

Little babies are growing up. This little fella is nearly 3 times the size of its brothers, I think because it's in the kitchen window while the rest are down in the basement under grow lights. It's also had a few brief stints out in the sun.

There's something about window sills that pepper seedlings take to. My kitchen window faced southwest, so the direct sun never hit seedlings until after 3pm, so the plants remained lush green like yours 👍

How To Grow tips  - 
 
Should I be concerned?

I started 3 types of peppers in my basement 3 weeks ago, but only two have germinated.  The Orange Habanero and Jay's Peach Scorpion Ghost seeds germinated with in 10 days.  However, the Fatilii's have shown no signs of life so far.  

I know that some types of peppers take longer than others, but I don't know about Fatalii's.  What's been your experience with them?

Little background information:  My seeds are grown in flats and kept at 80 F using heating mats.  I've had to remove the humidity dome from the flat since the other seeds have already germinated.  I water each cell when the soil dries out on top.  I bought my seeds from Refining Fire Chiles a couple months ago.

Contact jim Duffy (refining fire chiles) and tell him what's up. Maybe he can send you a few starts. He's a good guy and has always taken care of me. You can usually reach him easily on FB.

+Wolf Revels - when do you usually start your pepper plants? I'm considering starting them in January this year. (I'm basically in the same zone as you.)

Not sure letting the cat out of the bag was the right thing to do here....
Two independent researchers say that publicly releasing the code that enables BadUSB attacks will hasten a fix.

Harvesting & Recipes  - 
 
Simple Blender Salsa

1.5 lb Roma or San Marzano tomatoes, seeded and roughly chopped
2 hot peppers, roughly diced
3 green onions, cleaned and roughly chopped 
1/3 - 1/2 bunch of cilantro, cleaned and roughly chopped
Juice from half a lime
1 garlic clove, peeled and minced
1 can tomato juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Place all ingredients in a blender and chop until desired consistency.  Let sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes to allow flavors to meld.  

Optional: If you have dried Chipotles, soak one for 10 minutes, deseed and dice it and add it to the blender.  The smoky flavor goes well with this salsa.
