I just thought I would share with you my first pickins' from the garden! I finally have peppers big enough to pick. I thought I would have more banana peppers because I planted so many, but there are still a lot of smaller ones still growing, so I may end up with more than I can handle soon enough.
I just picked banana peppers, jalapeño peppers and habanero peppers. I love salsa and hot and spicy foods. My dad raised me eating cayenne peppers from a young age, I think that's why I love hot and spicy things so much. I will probably pickle some of them, freeze some and use up the rest making lots of salsa and in the dishes I cook .
I know, I didn't wait for the habaneros to turn red, but I couldn't resist! I love the flavor of habanero so much. Once I get more banana peppers, I will make some salsa with them and post the recipe and pics of it. I got the recipe from a friend and it's some of the best salsa I've ever had.
If you have any good recipes with peppers or for salsa, please let me know!
