Prepare for PEPPERS!

We went a little overboard sowing seeds. A year away from growing veggies and we lost perspective….We had doubts anything would grow, we didn’t know the land, the market, what it would be like farming with a little one, and now- we have so much food! It’s amazing and we feel very fortunate to have found homes for most of it but we’re not too sure about the peppers.

We LOVE them so I thought I’d give a little run down to entice folks to buy them up. We have a fair amount of varieties but our two main ones (and favorites) are highlighted below:

The Jimmy Nardello’s pepper is sweet and light when eaten raw.  It is also a Slow Food Ark of Taste variety. It is considered one of the very best frying peppers as its fruity raw flavor becomes perfectly creamy and soft when fried. A friend once sauteed these with garlic and served them over goat cheese- I was in heaven. They are our go-to for grilling up whole and then putting on burgers, sandwiches, etc. They are also great in eggs, sauces, salsa, you name it.

  
Sweet Sunset Italian Mix is a blend of yellow, orange, and red Sweet Italians that create a gorgeous meld of color. Many subtle trait variations on the Italian theme, with shoulder type, wall thickness, length, and tip-bluntness at play. Terrific salad peppers with few seeds and rich saturated color. We prefer these over the Nardellos for using fresh- so good in salads of all types.
We will be grilling these up in bulk to stash in the freezer for some winter sunshine : ) Let us know if you’d like a bulk order to do the same.

    Great to see you all! On your recommendation, we grilled up the Nardellos and paired them with chicken for quite a feast. Glad to see you all are doing well. Best- Leighann and Mark
