I can't resist all the vibrant colours around at the moment. Although the weather is still fairly warm, most of our chilli plants are reaching the end and we've had to harvest a lot of the fruit. I shall miss them all as I've enjoyed watching them change colour from green to purple or yellow to orange to bright, bright red.
Some of the peppers have turned out hotter than they should be as they have been cross pollinated with another variety.
It's essential to try the chillies before piling them all into your cooking creations to test their strength otherwise you could be in for a shock! A glass of milk can ease the heat exploding in your mouth and remember the pith around the seeds are usually the hottest part. Make sure you don't rub your eyes either!
Many thanks Judith for Mosaic Monday.
Have a great week and thanks for all the messages.
