Chile Pepper Profile #8 – Guajillo

Guajillo

Guajillo Pepper

Guajillo chile (chile guajillo in Spanish) is a variety of chili pepper of the species Capsicum annuum, which is widely used in the cuisine of Mexico. The guajillo chilli’s thin, deep-red flesh has a green tea flavor with berry overtones. Its fruits are large and mild in flavor, with only a small amount of heat (rating 2,500 to 5,000 on the Scoville scale). They are used to make the salsa for tamales; the dried fruits are seeded, soaked, pulverized to a thin paste, then cooked with salt and several other ingredients to produce a thick, red, flavorful sauce.

2007 Planting Day

2007 Planting Time

As you can see plants are everywhere on tables and the floor. We planted these last week and more will be planted later. HABANEROS are really sturdy this year and we’re hoping for great things. About 500 plants……..it will be interesting to see how much the harvest is.  I suspect we’ll have lots and lots to make the ever popular jams and jellies even hotter than last year.
