1 lb of Habanero
1 Gal of vinegar
Half a cup of salt
4 garlic cloves. Not the small pieces that come off but the entire clove.
Juice of 2 limes
Juice of 2 lemons
3 lbs of tomatoes
Blend everything only ad the vinegar to make it easier to blend about 1-3 cups should be good.
Add the remaining vinegar Cover and let it set for a week. You will probably need a 2 gal bucket.
The best thing is to get a 5 gal glass water jug and a stir plate from Kegkits.com this will allow everything to stir and mix together. The vinegar is going to keep everything from spoiling. The longer the better, Tabasco sits up for 7 years.
We are now posting to twitter.

The jalapeño is a medium-sized chili pepper. A mature jalapeño fruit is 2–3½ inches (5–9 cm) long and is commonly picked and consumed while still green, but occasionally it is allowed to fully ripen and turn crimson red. It is a cultivar of the species Capsicum annuum originating in Mexico, which is a bush that grows 2–4 feet (60–120 cm) tall. It is named after Xalapa, Veracruz, where it was traditionally cultivated. About 160 square kilometres (40,000 acres) are dedicated for the cultivation in Mexico, primarily in the Papaloapan river basin in the north of the state of Veracruz and in the Delicias, Chihuahua area. jalapeños are cultivated on smaller scales in Jalisco, Nayarit, Sonora, Sinaloa, and Chiapas. Jalapeno juice is often used as a remedy for seasonal allergies and other cardiovascular problems.

Baked beans seem like something that should be vegetarian friendly without much effort, but to buy them in the store takes effort. A few brands have one variety of vegetarian baked beans, but most have bacon or pork or some other part of a pig.
A little experimenting will give you the exact flavor you want, but using a crock pot and cooking them slowly will give almost any attempt amazing results.
You’re going to need a crock pot for this recipe, but I’m sure stove top will work if you have to.

Holland, MI —The fall harvest includes cabbage. Cabbage is kind of a funky vegetable. For many, it’s another one of those “you either like it or you really loath it” vegetables. I fall into the “like it” category.
My favorite is red cabbage. I love the strong sweet and sour flavor of cooked red cabbage with sugar and vinegar. At times, I even get a craving for it. Luckily, there is a prepared store brand out there that’s actually pretty good, so I don’t have to buy one, chop it up and cook it.
As far as green cabbage, I like a good cole slaw and often bring it as a dish to pass at a potluck. I also love a good cabbage roll. Hearty and warm, they are a perfect fall menu item.

Habaneros are child’s play. Only 300,000 Scoville heat units? Laughable.
The ghost pepper, also known as the bhut jolokia or naga jolokia, has over 1 million Scoville heat units.
One million. That’s hot. And a business for Jay Sheldon, who was raised in the sizzling desert of Tucson and now sells the hottest peppers in the world over the Internet.
They’ve replaced the peppers he downed when he grew up here: jalapeños.
