Pepper Success

2011 was a disappointing year for peppers here. Oh sure we enjoyed the 4 peppers we got but with over 20 plants, you can see the year wasn't a pepper success. 2012 has been spectacular. We are growing 2 varieties. We are freezing some and I get to eat peppers daily. Yum!
The Padron Peppers are a wonderful treat sauteed and topped with a hint of coarse sea salt. They are thin skinned and full flavored. Every now and then one will surprise you with a punch of heat but they are generally fairly mild. They grow abundantly so I am looking forward to a long season of savoring Padron Peppers.

Our peppers are doing better this year as well. Stepped into my girlfriends garden and said, "OMG," look at the size of her peppers. Honestly, one was the size of a small ball....she really needs to take a picture!!!

Hello my fellow Wisconsinite. I've never heard of Padron Peppers before but am taking note of them for next year. I grew some Habanero
Peppers with my grandson...his idea. Found a recipe for Habanero/Pineapple BBQ sauce and it turned out pretty good. He was proud of it. I should blog about it, but then I should blog about a lot of things because I haven't blogged for 4 or 5 months.

Happy Halloween.

Thanks for visiting!
