Home-Grown Red Chiles in Sesame Oil

September 30th: Some of my many cayenne pepper plants finally have red fruit. The potted cayenne pepper plants are producing faster than those in my tiny vegetable garden. Only pure vegetal compost, from my year-round pile, was used to feed the pepper plants. This cayenne pepper plant was grown from seed, and has larger fruit than the one I featured here last year, which was a nice, big, shapely thing from the nursery that turned out to be several small plants. I was able to mimic it by planting several seeds in a large pot. Following is a health-promoting sauce that I made today with some of the harvest:

Red chiles, freshly-harvested, are put into a blender and crushed with refined sesame oil, sea salt, and a few drops of toasted sesame oil.

I slow-cooked a mixture of quinoa and basmati rice this morning. To eat with it, I sautéed chile peppers, onions, pineapple, carrots and ginger in a wok primed with coconut oil. Onions, chiles, ginger and coconut oil are known to inhibit viral infections.
