Before this year, I don’t think we even knew these existed. Now we can’t get enough of them. They seem to be on the menu of nearly every restaurant we frequent and we’ve ordered them countless times… finally, I started making them at home. And I’ll tell you, they are just as good. And as with any simple vegetable preparation, the goodness is likely due to the fact that we’ve had really amazing ones available to us all summer long at our farmers markets.
The fun thing about eating these mildly sweet peppers is the fearful anticipation that you’ll get a hot one. I’m all for spicy food, but surprise spicy food is that much more fun.
