I have peppers on the pepper plants now. Mna this garden is doing just what I had hoped. Now I can share with the family.
Smoking is a great way to eat peppers. You can also pickle them so you can at least have them through out the year rather than giving them all away. I also chop my peppers up and put them in a good tight container and freeze them. That way if I need some for cooking I just scrape out what I need and put the rest back in the freezer. You do lose the crispness of the pepper but at least you still get the heat & flavor to add to a dish all year long..tedln wrote:My jalapenos are producing like crazy. I also have habenero's producing, but no one in my family except me, likes hot and spicy food. I'm giving them away as fast as I can. I'm giving Walmart bags of squash, beans, cucumbers, and tomatoes to friends and neighbors. I sneak a few peppers into each bag also. They may toss the peppers, but I can't bring myself to toss them. I guess I need to smoke some meat on my big smoker. I always smoke a lot of hot peppers at the same time and they are really good.
Well I finally have peppers! The plants got so top heavy one fell over! So I staked them all. I have red, orange, and green. The red and orange started green, and I'm hoping they will turn red. (Someone asked)Don't feel bad Garden Gal. I got the same here. Lots of flowers but no peppers but plants are growing and healthy so I keep watching everyday. It is my understanding peppers take their good old time to produce. We just got to be patient
