Well it is that time of year again when the yard is taken over by the chokos. Some of the ones still on the vine are huge so I will need to pick a pile today and decide what to do with them all.
I am going to take a bag full down the road 'cause the old bloke on the corner really likes them and he was asking about buying!! some. Sheesh, he'll be getting a lot of the extras for nothing just so they aren't wasted.
One thing I am going to try today is to turn them into Bread and Butter Pickles. I do that with cucumbers and it is so nice so can't see why it wont work with these. I don't have many green Capsicum to add to them like the recipe says to but I do have lots of banana caps (or chillies) so will use them. Hope they are not a hot chilli, I *think* they are a type of capsicum. They came in a punnet of mixed caps but I'm not game to take a bite to see what they are like.
I'll cook and freeze a bunch to add to soups and stews and will try different ways this year to what I usually do. I have a heap of recipes that need trying so will make sure I do this year.
And I'm sure that there are people out there that will want some. Sherrie? How about you? I could come for a visit and bring a bag...
