Chillis

These are photographs of some of my chilli plants grown from seed. My girlfriend originally planted them, but I took over caring for them once they were several inches tall. In the week since these were taken, two chillis on one of the pair of plants living inside the porch have turned from green to red. The first red chilli I ate in sausage and pea pasta, the second is still reddening.

Two varieties, Mr Fothergills Cayenne and Mr Fothergills Rokita, but after repotting due to root growth, I lost track of which plant was which variety.

3 or 4 tomatoes

*These were probably a mix of Cayenne and Rokita grown from seed (Mr
Fothergills). Though after several re-pottings over the past six
months I no longer know which were which.

slice chilies
chop onions
chop tomatoes

mix together in a bowl, season with a little salt and pepper if desired.

roll pastry out quite thin larger than 10" flan tin.
line tin, cut off excess pastry and put aside.
spread some tomato puree over pastry base.
fill with mixed chillies,onions,tomatoes and bacon.
grate cheddar cheese over top.

place in oven and check after ten minutes or so and leave until it's cooked.
