Peter Piper


I've been enjoying peppers from the garden all summer long. We have had them in salads and casseroles since July. I've also been freezing a few batches. With the cooler weather, they aren't really maturing further so I decided to harvest what was out there. I was a bit startled by the yield. The long yellow ones are sweet bananas, and the long green and red ones are an Italian heirloom variety called Nardello. The more globe-shaped dark green ones are a mild chili called poblano. A few of the poblanos ripened to a very pretty red. I'll dry them to make anchos.

I'd like to thank Gary and Gary Lee's sheep for helping with this year's high yields.

Not quite the same level of edibility, but see this:
