Home Grown: Turning Up the Heat in Peppers

Some people go to great lengths to get the hottest peppers around. So what can you do to turn up the heat in hot peppers?

Perhaps the best way to get the most pungent fruit is to plant the hottest cultivars you can get your hands on, assuming that they'll ripen in your area. There is another route, but I caution you to try it only on a small plot...

Federweisser Kit in Beverages

Spike Your Juice kit now available on the Wine page in Beverages

While it is certainly doesn't produce a fine wine, this simple kit an be used to transform fruit juice into an alcoholic beverage based on the German Federweisser tradition.

Federweisser, or “feather white” is a cloudy, sweet, bubbly almost-wine still in the fermentation process. It is the fall wine of choice at many harvest and wine festivals across Germany, where the original idea was to sample that season’s wine without having to wait for maturation. It is usually made with grapes unfit to produce high-quality finished wines.

Simply pour the packet contents into a 64-ounce juice container, seal with the airlock provided and set aside for a minimum of 48 hours at room temperature. The longer the mixture ferments, the more potent it becomes. Once the acquired taste is reached, close the bottle with the rubber stopper and refrigerate.

One box makes 3 gallons of beverage in 48 hours. Can be served hot or cold.
