A bowl of lush red chilies, of unknown hotness, has come my way. I love gifts from people's gardens. This season of abundance is full of many delights. So what to do with 7 chilies?

Pound up some hot curry paste
Slice finely to scatter through a Thai salad
Make a pot of vegetarian chili beans
Spice up a stir fry

What would you do?

Nice lookin' chillies! I'd char 3 of them 'til their skins are blackened then cool and peel them (well, as much as one can) then de-seed and chop them finely. Then add 3 roasted and peeled capsicums, a red, a green and a yellow, chopped as per the chillies. A drizzle of maple syrup, lots of lime juice and zest, olive oil and crushed garlic. Salt as ya like, and eat with simply cooked fish.

Cook some linguine, slice chillies very, very finely and toss linguine with the chillies, some finely chopped semi-dried tomatoes and some chopped anchovies. Amazingly good sweet/tart/salt/heat taste sensation.

The linguine sounds wonderful and since amalgamating households we have more anchovies in the house than you could poke a stick at!

The charring idea is interesting, though not liking capsicums I'm thinking of other things to mix them with - maybe in a tomato salsa?
