Hot Peppers Recipes

 

Availability: September.  Availability may vary from year to year, but general favorites include jalapenos, Hungarian hot wax, cayenne, poblanos, shishitos, and more.  If you have a favorite you'd like to see us try, let us know!

Storage tips: Hot peppers are best stored at store at room temperature.

How to eat: Hot peppers can be very hot. It is best to use plastic gloves when mincing up fresh hot peppers, as they can be irritating to your skin and eyes. They're great in stir-fries, asian and indian cuisine, salsas, and more. Most often a little bit goes a long way.

How to preserve:  BEST= Frozen!  Simply cut how ever you want to use them after thawing and throw them in a freezer bag.  So you can leave the seeds if you want or freeze them whole if you want.  Or minced.  Whatever is your preference.

This is great with eggs for breakfast!

Halve the shishito peppers and remove seeds and stems.  Heat oil on medium-high in skillet.  Add peppers in single layer and sprinkle generously with salt.  Fry for 3-5 minutes on each side or until skin is beginning to blister and darken.  Serve hot!  Yum!
