pepper time

September 6, 2009


I just got home from the farm stand with a load of local peppers.  You know they’re fresh when the car is filled with that magnificant pepper aroma.  It is midway through this Labor Day weekend and I’m thinking of caramelized slow-cooked peppers  with fresh mozzarella and a crusty baguette.  I’ll cook the peppers in olive oil until they have been reduced to a sweet pile of fiery deliciousness.  They’re ridiculous.   Earlier I put a rack of spice rubbed ribs in the oven and I’m beginning to smell their presence, reminding me that I did at least one smart thing to start off the day.  I’m going with a raw beet, jicama salad to round off the heavy duty flavors.  Since the day is young and I’m not getting any smarter I better get cookin.

      Hey Pepper Guy, thanks for the comment. After taking a quick look at your blog I see we share a love for peppers. Your roasting techniques are intriguing. I have 6 varieties of peppers growing but my garden doesn’t look as impressive as yours. I’m going to have some questions for you soon. It must smell great around your house!
