Lancashire chillies

Lancashire Chilis

It sounds unlikely, but one part of Lancashire is very hot indeed. Joe and Debbie Johnson have been growing chillies near Southport since 1997, and supply us with living chilli plants as well as small, hot red and green Thai chillies and larger red and green varieties.  They avoid pesticides and chemicals, using biological controls instead, with bumblebees to help with pollination. Fresh chillies add flavour as well as heat to recipes. Add whole to a curry as it cooks, or use in a Thai-inspired dressing for a herb salad with fresh lime juice, fish sauce and shallots.
