Pick a parcel of peppers and put ’em up

September 29th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Cooking tips, Food preparation, local food

What do you do when someone gives you nearly a peck of (unpickled) hot peppers like these? If you’re like me, you freeze them. (Of course, you could also pickle them.) I no doubt harmed their quality by letting them sit in the fridge for a week, but then I dug in. I washed them, […]
