A couple of days ago I went on a self discovery mission on why I grew jalapeno peppers last year when I didn't like them and with that in mind, why would I have grown them again this year knowing my distaste.
But I grew them and got suggestions from you on what to do with them.
Oh. My. GOODNESS! They were so good.
This year, instead of planting them in every square, I only have two plants that I've checker boarded and even with less sun, the peppers are growing so much larger than the others ever dreamed of which made me think that your suggestions of stuffing them weren't such a bad idea. If nothing else, the man would eat them.
So, I picked these this afternoon. I suppose you can use the ichiban eggplant as reference to size.
I stuffed them with cream cheese and since I didn't have bacon or sausage to wrap it in, I chopped up some of the left over bratwurst from our Memorial Day cookout and baked it in the oven.
Were they ever good! They didn't taste peppery at all. There was a hint of heat but since it wasn't crunchy or leathery it was perfect. Just perfect. The rest of those buggers need to go ahead and grow already. I've amended my ways and not like jalapenos.
As long as they're slathered in cream cheese and sausage, that is.
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
Oh! And I sprayed the garden with the fish emulsion, so now the whole yard smells like a dirty aquarium tank and the flies have descended upon Mecca. I hope it's worth it. ;)
