Chilli Drive 3 to 30 Jun

Do you have any hot chillies? Do you think they are too hot to eat?  That’s OK because we want them! 

We are in the middle of chilli season and those fiery little devils are ripening beautifully. Many of us may have planted chillies that are so hot they seem inedible. We grow them because they are decorative or because we want a few but can’t possibly eat them all.

If you have any, Slow Food Hunter Valley is looking for donations of really hot chillies. We are seeking super hot chillies like hot heads, fireballs, etc. (with heat rating of 8/10, 9/10 or even 10/10).  If you have chillies that are too hot to eat, don’t let them go to waste. Local growers or home gardeners can donate these chillies and they will be turned into a fiery hot chilli paste. Donations can be dropped at:

  1. the Slow Food Hunter Valley stall at the Earth Market on Thursday between 12.30 and 5.00pm (in the Levee) 
  2. Reader’s Cafe and Larder (3 Garnett Rd, East Maitland – at the East Maitland Library) Mon-Thur between 8am and 5pm
  3. or call Liz Griffiths on 0401 425 903 to discuss an alternative a drop-off point in Maitland’s CBD.

We’d love to hear from you (and thanks to those who have already provided us with some).
