Chilli Plant Care

Chilli plants require little water, and bright sunny spots in you house or garden.  Move to a shadier spot in the height of summer and water more frequently.  Do not overwater.

Feed with a liquid fertiliser as directed on the packet over the summer growing season, and pick you fruit frequently to encourage more flowers to set creating more fruit.

Please always wash your hands thoroughly after touching, chopping or picking chillies.

 

Chilli Oil

You will need:

A large quantity of dried chillies (fresh chillies will explode in the oil)
Ginger
Garlic
Light flavoured oil

Using a roasting thermometer, boil the mix for 15 minutes between 105 and 120 degrees C, moving the mixture on and off the heat source to regulate the temperature so that it does not overheat.

When the resulting mixture has cooled it can be stored for about 6 months, and then can be filtered through a simple paper coffee filter to give a clear oil that can be used for cooking at any time when chillies are not seasonal.

Chilli plants are very ornamental plants in the garden, especially when their colourful fruit is displayed on the shrub, whether they are used for eating or not. They are both hardy and tasty.
