This week my box had three different types of peppers; bell peppers, jalapeño peppers and what I think the farmer described as an Italian heirloom sweet pepper called Corono do Toro. The share box had a bag of jalapeños that someone had ditched, so I took those as well. My husband wants me to roast the jalapeños and the heirlooms, then freezer vacuum them, so we will have grilled peppers all year. We also discussed roasting, then pickling the bell peppers. That sounds really good, but my canning and pickling skills are at a beginner level. Maybe this weekend…
While we love our grilled and roasted peppers, I am interested in trying something different. What other things have you done with peppers of any sort? I am open to new ideas.
Beyond the peppers, I got a cantelope and another melon, sweet corn, tomatoes, grapes, apples, and icicle radishes.
I’m sad because we got no greens this week (I’ve been adding kale and chard to almost everything!) and no onions, so I will have to buy onions at the grocery store this week. 🙂
I still have salad greens from last week’s box, so I am thinking this week we may have salad based meals one or two nights. Some fruit salad, and maybe a smoothie for breakfast.
