    Cool. How do you cook it? Broccoli is the wife's favorite veg. Steamed in the microwave, a little cheese over the top.

    Have you tried broccoli slaw? My wife likes it although she accuses me of being cheap and making it so I don't have to throw the stalks away. She's right you know! So, now she buys broccoli crowns at Kroger...T

    I got mine too and haven't had a chance to cook any. I think Gordo just says cook with an onion, check their receipe for the beans and I'll let you know when I cook some of mine.

    Doing the turkey soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for sure tonight. Getting a good work out cause I'm moving soon. Decided to move the garage into a storage locker to get that out of the way. Just finished loading my truck with boxes. Going to unload it and then take Bella to the park. I'll be starving when done.

    Good idea to unclutter current house if you're going to show it off to prospective buyers.

    Mahi tacos. Homemade guac. Trying out Tabasco Family Reserve for the first time. Have to say I'm a tad underwhelmed for the first time ever by a Tabasco product. It's good, not 4x the price of original good. A tad more vinegar-y than original IMO.

    What is family reserve Tabasco about? I've never heard of it. Aged longer maybe? I've got another batch of homemade sauce fermenting away in the cupboard. I don't think it's gonna be quite as good as last years but we'll see. About another month to go.

    I’ve got a couple bottles. It’s ok, not very different from the std hot sauce that I could tell. For something different go for the garlic cayenne, habanero, or the chipotle.

    Family Reserve is an unopened bottle.

    Whereas the discolored bottle is for The Thing That Wouldn't Leave overextending a stay.

    I like the jalapeno Tabasco but it's got a bunch of stuff added to it. Not sure why, the regular is just peppers, vinegar, and salt.

    I'm only leasing this house. Looking for another rental, our real estate is too over priced. Waiting for the correction.

    Family Reserve is smaller batch. White wine vinegar instead of regular. Aged longer.

    All of the sauces other than original have double the number of ingredient: flavorants, thickeners, emulsifiers, etc. Not sure why the original doesn't need the food chemistry magic.

    Original is still the best IMO. As suggested, for a change of pace, I like chipotle, green and habanero. I've only had the garlic cayenne once; found it at a store in Louisiana. Good stuff. Asian has almost no heat, near impossible to find, good as a dipping sauce. Tried the scorpion. Didn't really like it. Was all heat, no flavor IMO. Tabasco sriracha is awesome IMO. It's like the commercial for Frank's Red Hot "I put that **** on everything!" Really wish they'd bring back the rocoto pepper sauce ; that was great!

    Have you posted up your recipe for making homemade hot sauce. I have a bunch of chili peppers on order, some plants overwintering ; starting germinating some seeds this week (fingers crossed!). If the gardening gods smile on us, we hope to have a bumper crop of peppers! So, I may need some ideas to use them.

    I'll look it up, it's simple. Peppers, vinegar, water and salt. I add a bit of onion and garlic. Then you just cook it for like 10 minutes, whiz it up in a processor or blender and throw in jars in a dark place for three months or so. But I'll find the recipe and post it. My batch last year was from extra peppers at the end of the season, I even threw all the green habaneros in. It was very good. Didn't grow much this year but got some from my CSA and bought some at the store.

    I'm hoping to do better with a garden this year too. Peppers are tough here because they take so long to start. Most of the plants I had two summers ago I bought pretty good size. I've not had great luck starting plants from seed but I do direct sow lettuce, it works great!!

    Here's the actual recipe in pic form, the way I got from a friend. I usually have to look it up in my email every year! Like it says after the three months you can either leave it chunky so it'll be like Sambal, or you can blend it further and strain to get it down to a little thicker than Tabasco. The first year I made it I did both. Last year I blended and strained it all down and bought some little bottles. Kept some and gave some away. It was popular.

    Oh, and I like this one because since you cook it before fermenting it doesn't need any tending, venting, nothing. Just put it in the jars and leave it in a dark cupboard. Other recipes need more.

    Thanks. Sounds like the Tabasco recipe!

    We use seed tape for lettuce with great success. At least early and late in the season. When it's roasting hot in the middle summer, we do our best just to keep lettuce alive until fall by moving their pots into a shaded area.

    By the way, you can overwinter pepper plants to get a head start on the season. They need to be pruned back and covered. Lots of YouTube videos on the topic.

    http://www.chileplants.com
    also has a lot of info on pepper plants. You can see if there are any with a shorter growing season that you might like. Although if you like the hottest peppers, those mostly take a long time to mature and fruit.

    Strips, strips, strips are everywhere. I'll be joining that club, cooking a costco prime NY tonight...

    Torn on whether to high-temp pellet smoke it, or turn my propane grill on for the first time since I got it 5 months ago, or use the cast iron on my 24,000BTU outdoor burner...or a combination thereof...

    Doing Kirkland Angus beef patty burgers. Got a few left and want to use them up. Freezer is getting lower, one more turkey to go. Then its just mixed veggies and think smoothie mixed fruit. I'll make a turkey casserole to get rid of the mixed veggies.

    Same here with Scorpion, just hot to be hot with no flavor. I tossed a bottle then kicked myself - meant to save it. Science experiment... Dilute and spray on bushes the deer like to munch on. Bet that would get their attention! I'll get a couple bottles and try it next fall. Mixed in a neem oil solution may work, that stuff is pretty sticky.

    Love their sriracha sauce! I order direct from Tabasco and get a few bottles of it each time along with other goodies.

    Edit... just checked their website, no gallon containers of Scorpion (deer repellent). Others are about $50/gal, not bad!

    Better watch it, your deer may develop a taste for hot stuff! You don't want chili head deer running around your property!

    I'm mean. I put Tabasco sauce on stuff that Bella tries to chew. Like furniture. She doesn't like the bottle now. I took a rock from her the other night. She nipped me hard, but not hard enough to break skin. I gave her a shot of Tabasco sauce on my finger. Had the bottle in my pocket. Its a harsh correction for a five month old dog, but can't have her biting. She'll be over 100lbs soon!

    Oddly enough, digging, biting, chewing, etc. have never been issues with the Princess. She came from the pound both crate trained and house broken.

    Salmon burgers tonight. Roasted some Anaheim chiles. Blended those into some hummus, squirt of lime, dash of EVOO. That was the burger topping, along with some chili garlic paste.
