Photo Friday: Hot Peppers

My hot peppers have been doing remarkably well. Perhaps too well. I have an overabundance of jalapenos and the number of red chili peppers dangling from the plant has me kind of alarmed. On top of those two plants, I have a mystery pepper plant, one that claimed to be habaneros, but is growing straight up and pointy, green, then turning brown and rotten. I don’t know what they are or, therefore, when to pick them.

I’ve made spicy chipotle sauce that ended up so spicy, a single tablespoon provides enough heat to a pot of tomato sauce. I’ve made jalapeno bread. I’ve made a delicious, tomatoey shepherd’s pie of sorts.

I’m happy with my peppers. Even if we don’t eat too many spicy foods, I’m glad they’re doing so well. If only I could say the same thing about my falling over bushy mess of tomato plants.

  1. Hi there! I have lots of hot peppers too! Will you share the recipes you used? I'm not sure what to do with mine! πŸ™‚

  2. Great photos! Jalapeno bread sounds pretty darn good! Can you share that recipe with us? We grow hot peppers as well but since we're asian….we like to marinate these hot peppers with soya sauce and when you cook with it or use it as a dip….it adds heat and extra flavor πŸ™‚

  3. It's pretty easy… just chopped a whole bunch of jalapenos (with or without seeds, depending on how hot you like it) and shred some cheese, and knead the whole lot into your favourite bread recipe before the first rise.
