Deb did a great post called Harvest Time in Key West with Chilies, with lots of interesting chilli pepper information and some great photos.
For example, did you know that, the more you eat chilli in food, the more immune you become to the heat and so you have to keep adding more peppers, to enjoy that same powerful kick?
I decided it was time for me to brave my jalapeno plant and harvest some of the fruit!
I am afraid I didn't try anything very adventurous!
I made chilli and served it on flour tortillas with sour cream and salad leaves.
Now, don't get me wrong, it was delicious! I have found that adding some dark chocolate makes a real impact on the taste of the chilli. It adds such a depth of flavour and tones down the flavour of tomatoes! So I was happy with our meal and Graham really enjoyed it.
And, I found a great recipe for Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers with Goat's Cheese over at Lisa's Kitchen. How good do they sound?
That will take care of some of my peppers, but I need some help! What shall I do with the rest of the crop? All good vegetarian ideas will be gratefully accepted!
I passed my Open University short course! (short course, those 4 months, felt like at least 4 years!) What I want to know is how does anyone manage to work full time and study? If they have a family too, then I am flabbergasted and award a gold star :)
