That's new to me! You are the first to show me this small pepper. I read that it's very hot, so it wouldn't take many of those little peppers to impart some heat to a bottle of vinegar.

Siling labuyo is generally accepted as the world's smallest hot pepper, as the fruit often measure a mere 0.20 in (0.51 cm) in length by 0.10 in (0.25 cm) in width[6]

May is an early date for peppers to be coming in. I hope you enjoy them

The wife's co-worker gave her some peppers and I grew that plant from seed. It does surprisingly well where it is. But... All my pepper plants produced early. My mother was telling me something about an El Nino something something weather system that was giving us unusual weather.

Idk, but the peppers are doing great. The basil has been disappointing for years now. Not sure why, it used to be so easy to grow.

Since those peppers are so hot and yet small, extracting seeds from them must have been a delicate operation. I learned the hard way years ago with the milder Jalapeno peppers, what pepper hands means.... And then making the mistake of rubbing my eye and feeling the burn!

Even if the growing conditions are changing, I'm glad for your sake that it's been a blessing when it comes to pepper production.

They're a little tricky to seed, they tend to mush too. Probably why they don't sell these in the stores, they're not very durable peppers.

I use alcohol or mineral oil to remove the capsaicin, or if you have mechanic's soap. Regular soap just doesn't do a great job at removing it.

Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. Philippians 4:11-13

Yes, we can be content in all things! There is always something to be thankful for (like the peppers). I appreciate the scripture you shared. We can do all things through the one who died for us and lives for us: Christ, who strengthens us when we turn to him. It only takes a thought directed toward him to receive strength.

That's interesting that you learned ways to remove the hot chemical from the peppers so you can safely extract seeds.

I mean to get it off your hands afterwards.

Oh, now that is clear to me.... You have a method to wash the hot chemical off your skin. Yeah, regular soap did not work for me. I still had peoper pepper hands. My solution was to buy cheap, plastic disposable gloves and wear them when removing seeds from a large quantity of peppers.

Rice, a staple food for over half of the world's population, plays a crucial role in global food security. As demand for high-quality rice increases, so does the need for efficient processing equipment. Among these, cone polishers stand out as essential tools in the rice milling process. In this article, we delve into the significance of cone polishers and the pivotal role played by manufacturers in advancing rice quality.
