I have a plethora of peppers -- banana peppers, green peppers, jalapeno peppers! I am thankful that my bushes are healthy and productive, but what to do with all the peppers? I posed the dilemma to my Facebook friends and got helpful suggestions:
~ share! Yep, done that.
~ pickle them. Yep, done that, too.
~ freeze them. A good idea, but I prefer not to use the freezing method for food preservation. Having experienced the aftermath of Hurricane Fran going 2 weeks without electricity, I am hesitant to rely on methods that require more than sitting on a shelf.
One solution that came to me yesterday morning as I harvested even more peppers was to create a new way of eating them. So my family became taste testers at dinner last night. The reviews were not all rave, but each of us felt the creations had potential.
Unfortunately, there is not a lovely picture of the finished product to share. I visited with a neighbor on the way in from milking and was late getting the casserole out of the oven. The top was overdone and ugly, but the dish definitely deserves another go'round.
