Surprise! Red Hot Cherry Peppers

I love having a garden outside my windows, even if it is limited. This year we chose to only plant tomatoes and peppers. We usually pick a Santa Fe hot pepper, but because we decided to grow from seeds this year, we really did not know which one to buy. Somehow we ended up with more than one kind and these were the first to harvest. I had no clue! They look like tomatoes!

Thank goodness for the internet. Put in the right words and you can find anything. Unfortunately, I did not learn enough before I tasted it. The flesh is pretty mild and has a sweet background taste. Feeling safe, I decided to pop the remainder in my mouth. Oh my! That only lasted a half sec. The seeds are very, very hot! My tongue was on fire for at least an hour.

These peppers are popular for pickling and stuffing. Their flesh is too tough for drying. However, you can chop them to add to salads or sauteed veggies, and even salsa.

Just a reminder: Stay away from the seeds! If you have ever cooked with these, please let me know what you did with them.
