Aren't we lucky to get eggplants and peppers? Gimme a B!

Any eggplant dishes planned?

Are you eating plenty of peppers? How?

The sweet ones i just eat. The hot ones I'll freeze and use in cooking, maybe pickle a few. The hot ones just started producing lately. My niece and her husband are O's. He eats ketchup on his ketchup. I know a recipe for a bbq sauce using one or two habaneros, sucanat, apple cider vinegar, coconut oil, onion, garlic, lime juice, dark rum and yes, tomato paste. I might make them a couple of pints. It's far healthier for them than that corn syrup laden burger spoiler that they usually use.

Looks delicious!
Mind telling us how you pickle your peppers, Peter Piper?

Well I haven't pickled them just yet. Mom allways heated vinegar and some salt and water bath processed them then let them age a while. I'll have to check my cook book vault for a recipe. I might limit the pepper pickling to the Lemon Drops. They are hotter than jalapenos but chocolate habanero is hotter than regular habanero. Sauce with it would need a certain smokiness? Roast the peppers on the charcoal grill first maybe( or wait till I have more than one)?

Sounds good GCG
Well right now I just dry my red jalapenos- I like to crumble them in less interesting root veggie dishes during winter.

The sweet I mainly eat- last year I picked some very late october when frost came and the matured in my windows.. some years I have charcoal grilled them first and put in glasses with a little lemonjuice and garlic and topped with olive oli- lasted a long time in fridge.

Eggplants- well roasted with red peppers and blended with yoghurt and herbs and eaten cold as a soup maybe with cucumber dices.
A nice different cold soup.

My tomatoes for my O - are amazing as well - tasted a few yesterday never had such sweet tasty tomatoes as this year

Glad you're both hot pepper fans.

Both of your ideas/ processes/ recipes look yummy.
Never had eggplant soup, Henriette.
But have enjoyed eggplant "caviar" many times - a staple of my childhood, in fact.
For your O, you can make that with those fantastic tomatoes!

Basically it is a thin version of eggplant caviar - learned it from my Lebanese friend.
She adds dill and sometimes a cold chicken stock - I have just used water or cold veggies stock.

Weather and the B. Especially us Nomads: It's supposed to affect us?

Let's talk Humidity, Bs:

San Francisco's humidity averages 52-54% in August.
This year, it's 90's to 100%, day after day after day... It's been like this since, like, mid-June.

It's ruined our summer - this is usually a very comfortable time of year here - quite cool.
Well, the temps are fine (60s, Fahrenheit), but the humidity is...bizarre. Cuckoo.

Anyone experience this (cool temps with killer humidity)?
Coping tips to share?

Yes, I've had to repair bridges over rivers and bayous. You can't wear thick enough clothes for that combination of humidity, temperature, and wind in the winter at least. Total body covering coveralls, even of just heavy denim, work better than just a heavy jacket. Wool hiking socks with your boots  help. My most prized garment is a red skull cap of real merino wool, much better than the synthetics. I don't know how I happened to find it at Dillards in New Orleans.

Is our humidity really that high this summer?   No wonder I have been so miserable.  I have escaped to Portland this week for a break.

Depends which site you consult, apparently, which is even crazier.

Humidity is always highest late at night (the numbers I cited, above). At the moment weather shows a dip to 93%. This could drop to 74% by noon.

But here's the article from a few weeks ago about this summer's phenomenon:
http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.c.....oudy-wet-muggy-july/
Where in the Bay Area are you, susanC, where it is muggy?

Adding another item re: this summer's mugginess:

Hot and very humid summer in Denmark
- but strange enough no rain   in almost 3 months...

I feel horrible when it is hotter than 25 C
often this year we have had 30 c with 80-90 %
I have slept horrid nights been hot and humid as well....

Normal danish summers are 20-25 c with a few days with + 30 c
and fairly dry with 40- 60 %

The sfgate site is showing humidity figures that appear to be reversed night for day.
http://www.wunderground.com/auto/sfgate/CA/San_Francisco.html
It was when I saw its coverage earlier tonight that I posted here.
The "90's-100%" humidity figures reflect actual late night/wee hour humidity (is my assumption), while DAYTIME figures are in the 75% range (according to many other websites - ALL others that I've seen), not the other way around.
My guess is that this error will be corrected.


Even so, humidity that drops into the 70s by late afternoon is still high for San Francisco summer; we're having a humid season is all.
I wouldn't fly to Portland, however, where the percentages are only around 10% better.  

Henriette - Sorry you, too, are suffering with strange summer weather.

I'm just wondering if sensitivity to this humidity is a particularly B or Nomad Thing.  
I'm getting the feeling not everyone is as sensitive to this as I am.

All over the neighborhood, interiors are muggy, particularly those with refrigerators (emitting heat), while out of doors the cool breeze makes the air feel almost normal.

san j--I am in Burlingame.  Not too far south of you.  I'm not surprised to hear that the humidity has been the highest in the middle of the night.  The nights have been so still--no breeze at all.  I don't have to tell you.  Sounds like it's humid all over the world this summer--Denmark and Cajun is complaining even about the desert in SoCal.

Portland is having a more humid summer than usual too--but the humidity is so much lower in Portland in the summer.  Actually, in spite of the winter rain--it is generally lower humidity in Portland most of the year than the SF bay area.  It was 100 degrees on Monday when I arrived here in Portland, but dryer heat.  Now it's in the 70's which is making me very happy.  I'm mostly here to visit my son and his wife.

This Teacher has been suffering greatly with the heat/humidity this summer.  May not be exclusively a Nomad thing.

Just to clarify (and I recently learned this, myself): Humidity is NORMALLY highest during the "middle of the night", mounting until the predawn hours, when actual dew can be formed. The lowest humidity here is generally about 3pm.

The problem is that that wee hour humidity has been almost 100%, and the daytime humidity only drops down to 75% instead of the normal 55%.

I'm always bothered by humidity, whether it is hot or cold. I've lived in many places, but most recently in the southeast US. Most homes, and covered porches, in the SE have ceiling fans. And they make a huge difference in my comfort when the humidity is high. The fan creates enough air movement to help evaporate moisture from the skin, and makes a huge difference in comfort level. If I move to another region with high humidity, I would definitely install ceiling fans!

Humidity really bothers me. I can tolerate heat if it's dry, even Pheonix heat... but  humidity? Blech!  Sounds like you're suffering our summer, while we're enjoying yours.   Windows open in August? Never before.

Here's the deal, for those of you who love maps and perspective.

For MONTHS,  San Francisco has been suffering from humidity 10-20% above the average.
There's been no break, and - remember: It doesn't rain here in the summer.

So (I've been surfing to get a handle on this):
We in San Francisco are currently experiencing
94% humidity -
the same as Nashville, TN and parts of Mexico, and even HoChiMinh City, Vietnam and Calcutta, India
-- but in these areas and at these times, those places are experiencing thundershowers within a matter of hours and/or miles, while San Francisco hasn't seen rain in 3+ months and won't see it again for approximately another 2 months.
No Relief In Sight!

Biloxi, MS has lower humidity.
Houston, TX has lower humidity.
Miami, FL has lower humidity.
The various Caribbean islands have lower humidity.

Hong Kong, China has lower humidity.  
Bangkok, Thailand has lower humidity.  
Manila, Philippines has lower humidity.  
You get the picture now.

But note: These places have high temperatures, too. We DO NOT.
So it's this insidious creeping sticky muggy phenomenon
requiring the constant running of fans, even though it's "cool" outside...

AARRGGGHHH!

san j--I flew into SFO this afternoon from my Portland visit and the fog over the ocean is as intense as I've ever seen it.  I know August is our big fog month, but it seems particularly heavy.  It was hot, hot, hot in Portland and more humid than usual, but nothing compared to what you are reporting for the city.

That thick fog is normal in August. Have you flown over our city at this time of year before?
We look forward to it all year.
If it's somewhat thicker than usual, it could be due to **, below?

What's not normal (links are to cool maps, to illustrate):

**Surface Sea Temperatures extremely high off San Francisco.
http://polar.ncep.noaa.gov/sst/ophi/nepac_anomaly_ophi0.png
I just checked - it's currently 3º above normal.

Atmospheric Water Vapor (correlates with relative humidity) W-A-A-A-Y-Y above normal in California this summer: http://www.weatherwest.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/compday.l5NgqMryRn.gif

Here's a cool article about changes in the jet stream from the SE Pacific Rim (Indonesia/Malaysia) and how they are affecting the NE Rim (California) this summer:
http://www.weatherwest.com/archives/1709

Related? Dry lightning strikes, causing wildfires in California.
Lightning strikes over the Pacific, 100mi. from San Francisco.

Not my area of expertise.

But frustrated with the lack of media coverage; one has to go to these "specialist" sites to find possible answers.
I'm just sharing what I'm seeing.

It's a lovely night right now (59º), with humidity about 93%.
Fans are off, for the moment...

I'm going to assume this is in play for me:

I invite other Nomads to share re: that "sensitivity".
