This is our first year growing cubanelle peppers. They are sweet like a bell pepper but with a slight heat. I am looking forward to my first stuffed pepper. Looks like a few more days and they will be the perfect size.
The California Wonder only has one large pepper but I am sure it will be a good producer this year. The pepper is getting to be a good size and I have it tagged it for my Ratatouille I plan to cook later in the week. I am waiting for the eggplant to get a bit larger before I use it in my ratatouille dish. Here is my recipe for this dish
1 large yellow squash cubed or sliced
1 med size zucchini cubed or sliced
1 large onion chopped
1 large bell pepper chopped
1 eggplant cubed
1 cup chopped fresh tomatoes or 1 can tomatoes
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Saute onions and peppers until soft then add the remaining ingredients and cooked until all the vegetables are soft.
A simple dish but loaded with flavor that even the kids love.
The Jalapeno bush is loaded. We have been out of salsa for several months. I am looking forward to making salsa with these jalapeno, our fresh tomatoes, and the onions from our garden. I follow the directions for making salsa at www.pickyourown.org.
This is a tiny little Cayenne pepper but there are many blooms on the bush. I am going to try my hand at a Tabasco type hot sauce this year.
So while Peter Piper may not have picked a pepper here at my little farmhouse it won't be long before we will be picking a peck of peppers.
