Habanero Happiness.

Well, not as big a haul as three years ago, but this is respectable:

That’s a three-gallon basket, brimming full. I’d guesstimate about 350 – 400 Habaneros.

I think I know that I’m doing today.

Added, 5:00 PM: Over 600 habs at final count. Chopped and cooked down. Everything run through the Foley, now the first dozen half-pints are processing in a water bath. I’ll probably get another 8 – 10 jars after these are done. Stuff is great, consistency of a thick pea soup – pureed habs, about 3.75 per ounce – and good lord, is it HOT.

Quick recipe for future reference: 600 habs, chopped in food processor. About 10 ounces of chopped garlic. One very large yellow onion. 20 ounces real apple cider vinegar. One cup sugar. About 4 tablespoons of Kosher salt. 16 ounces of homemade tomato sauce. Simmer for 2 hours, process.

(Oh, an aside: I think that the Prednisone is helping. Now I just have to resist the urge to try and make up for all the stuff I *haven’t* been doing for the last three months…)
