I'll have a side of smoked habaneros please :)

14 posts in this topic

Gotta have a stash of smoked habaneros in the freezer; albeit a small stash today.    I've found mesquite is my favorite wood for the smoke session.   Normally mesquite isn't my go to wood for much but habaneros and mesquite are a match made in hot heaven :)

I've never smoked hab's before. Interesting idea. I've made chipotles and roasted hatch peppers. But, I'm not growing any hab's this year, just ghost peppers. If we don't get an early frost, I should get enough for making a batch of hot sauce.

Nice roast. I like your screen for the job at hand. Next summer I really need to visit the farmers market more often and do more roasting and freezing.

Smoked habaneros added to homemade basil pesto (toasted pistachios are our favorite) ...

Smoking tames the heat ... for whatever reason I can't explain.   They're still hot but not 'rude hot'.   They're just so darn addicting!

Do you freeze whole?

Yes, I freeze them on a parchment lined cake pan; although since there is almost no moisture in them the parchment paper liner isn't probably necessary. Then once frozen they go into a glass canning jar and vac sealed.   When I want one I just remove one from the jar, reseal and they hold in the freezer for a long time.

Great minds - pillaged my basil plants yesterday and made a batch of pesto - with pistachios (my fav, too!) Didn't put any smoked peppers in it, but tons of garlic and cheese!

Start with just a small piece, maybe 1/8 of a pepper if your palate is mild to mild-medium.   You can always add more ;)

We started doing the smoked habanero and also smoked jalapeño in basil pesto almost 30-years ago and its just a wonderful combination.   I'm addicted to habanero's flavor and rarely venture into smoked jalapeño land anymore.

Also, mince the smoked habanero and add it to basic guacamole.   Just mashed avocados, a little salt, a spritz of fresh lime, a little pinch of freshly toasted ground cumin seed and the minced smoked habanero.  Addicting!

Might have to buy a bag at the market and try this, since I don't have any plants this year.
