GREEN CHILLIES GALORE

Hello all

Just been given loads, and I mean loads of mixed green chillies, nearly 2 kg, and I do not know what to do with them. I'll freeze some to use in currie, but I`d love to know how to preserve them, jam, jelly, chutney, or likewise. Can anyone share with me some ideas and recipes?

Thank you all

Thread a string through each one and hang up to dry, onion style.

I've no idea of the recipe, but here in Spain they pickle and bottle them. A great accompaniment for stewed dry beans. thumbsup

My brother always had them pickled and ate them straight from the jar or put them in toasted sandwiches.
I am also not sure of the pickling process.

Re: GREEN CHILLIES GALORE

This is an indian recipe for Chilli Pickle which looks nice and says it lasts for up to a year if stored correctly in sterilized jars. Website link should go here...

Unfortunately I cannot add a link to the website as I am a new member but if you go to a website called Mamtas Kitchen (google it) and type in chillies in the search engine on the website then lots of recipes will come up including 4 for Chilli pickle, the first one looks the best to me.



I have a chilli plant at home and often dry the chillies out by making a very small hole with a sharp knife in the top of the chillies and threading them though some string I then tie this up in a warm dry place where there is air circulation until they have completely dried, then they can be put in a jar and used all year in sauces etc.

Lildebs, to add website links, what I do is go to the site, copy the address, and then paste it where I need it. Hope this helps. smile

Stella Heath, thanks, i did try that but got a message saying that I could not add a link to my first few posts as I am a new member, it's to avoid spam or something.
