I'm relatively new to this, but after a couple of years growing tomato plants I was looking for alternative ways to enjoy them.
This year I was given an 'F1 Medina Chili plant' to grow and a plan was formed:
Found a simple recipe:
250g chopped onions
500g chopped tomatoes
100g-200g (depending on ‘heat’ required) chopped chilli peppers
175ml red wine vinegar
140g brown sugar
Heat olive oil in a pan
Add chopped onions
Add chopped tomatoes
Add chopped chilli peppers
Add some black pepper
Add red wine vinegar
Add brown sugar
Stir and simmer for 30-40 minutes
Store in sterilised jar for approx. 1 month
Having done a batch earlier in the year and with the seasons drawing off, I went out late one Saturday to see loads of green, orange and red tomatoes. "Brilliant" I thought "I'll grab them in 5".
Went out the following Saturday and at least 2 thirds had fallen off and were unusable (nibbled to by slugs and what-nots).
Managed to save about a dozen from the plant and had to buy some from ASDA to bulk up.
Anyway, started off chopping and measuring:
You can just see the greenish ones from my plant on the left.
Here's my lovely Medina chili removed from the plant. I assume this is it for this year but the plant lives inside so you never know:
That's 30g worth. I used about 7g last batch and it was hot enough.
All chucked in waiting the pan:
I'd say it turned out not too hot, but the wife won't try any!
