Flavorful cooking with habanero peppers? Answered

I really like the flavor of habanero and have used various store-bought sauces in cooking. I'd like to try using habanero peppers in cooking, so I recently tried a raw habanero. The flavor was great, but the heat was overpowering. Is there something that can be added to raw habanero to bring out its flavor, but dilute its heat?

I want to set up a hydroponics system but don't want to buy commercial nutrient or medium. Answered

Can i just flood the soil the plant is growing in for a temporary portion of the day? I don't have a problem with the pump, just buying the nutrient / medium. Can i just use soil and wet it down really well once a day and then drain it (out the bottom)? Would floating soil in the water being circulated through the system work? I could empty water / put more soil in on a regular basis.

Odd facts include that the sign on process will work on an iPod touch, you can't write topics on Android machines and only skyfire will load up the rich editor but will only write source, pages can be saved when building an 'ible. but that's it.   Basically I'm barely at the computer any more, being kind of mostly homeless so the rare occasions when I'm back are usually publishing 'ibles and doing serious computer things like getting amusing photos off the phone.

Building a Transparent Dispay Monitor

I'm currently in the process of building a peppers ghost inspired computer monitor. I will be going through this DIY step by step and updating each time I progress. During this build I will be taking peoples suggestions from each previous step and applying it to the build. So this will be built by my and inspired by the community. First issue: I am using Lexan as the display and as you can see in the picture, I have already stumbled upon my first issue. Everything is backwards! So, first round of suggestions will be how to fix this. Note: Windows OS has built in capabilities to do screen ROTATIONS but not FLIP/MIRROR. I cannot stress enough how many people assume rotating, flipping, and mirroring are the same thing. In Microsoft's built in display panel they list: Landscape, Portrait, Landscape(Flipped), Portrait(Flipped). However the two flipped settings are merely rotations.

Updating an upsidedown planter and had some ideas, the only problem is that I know nothing about gardening. please help.

K, so I've been trying to make an instructable for about a year now, but I always pick projects that are apparently too ambitious for me as I never finish them... But I just had an idea as I will not be home this sumer so I won't have the joy of attempting to grow peppers this year... which means I'll have to try over the winter months. So I saw this instructable and thought it seemed like a perfect idea https://www.instructables.com/id/Matts-Original-Inverted-Planter-aka-IPlanter/ And then I started getting ideas of how to update it and make it better... however, I know a sum total of about nothing when it comes to plants... Last year i just bought a pepper plant from the local greenhouse, fed it fertilizer sticks once every other week, shoved it on my shed roof and hoped for the best... It succeeded, but I'm not yet willing to say it was skill on my part. So My first plot for an update came from this instructable https://www.instructables.com/id/Upside-Down-Hanging-Self-Watering-Earth-Filled-Box/ Since the pot will be hanging upside down and all that, checking the soil will be hasslesome, so a self watering system seems like a good idea, but this just seems complicated to me... So I've seen these things (http://www.amazon.com/Aqua-Globes-AG011706-Watering-2-Pack/dp/B000FHAJ90) on tv from time to time and was wondering how they work? Like could I just cut off the base of a wine bottle and shove the neck into the soil and then just fill the wine bottle as needed (or some other kind of glass bottle... i can cut glass easy enough)? My next though was when the instructable told me to cover the hole with plastic wrap so nothing leaks out onto the floor... But then I was thinking if a cork could also do the same task... I was thinking of drilling a hole through it and then cutting it into 4 pieces and re-assembling it around the stem and corking the bottle from the inside... Since I made the cuts I figure the plant would just move the cork out of the way as it grew and would eventually be big enough to just take the place of the cork... but again i don't know enough about plants to know if this would actually work. My last question is more of a what type of plant should i put in my bottle... I personally like peppers but the last time i grew them was on the roof of my shed and I'm wondering if they need more sun then they would getting sitting inside and upside down through the winter... and if not, what kind of plat could I plant in an upside down planter designed for indoor winter use? Also, is it true that used coffee grounds make for good fertilizer?

Too Short for an Instructable- free water

A friend showed me this trick at Safeway. If you are thirsty, but either 1) Don't have money on you or 2) Don't want to buy a whole bottle just for a few sips, most food stores are required to give free water to anyone who asks. There will be no signs advertising this fact. Simply walk up to the counter (we did this at a small Starbucks stand by the bakery) and politely ask for a drink of water. My friend received a clear plastic cup filled with water and ice, no charge. Then I walked up and bought a Dr. Pepper, not free of charge.
