Don’t sweat the small stuff
Take a break from the heat. Peppers picked this time of year will be at their hottest. That’s good news for those of us who are ready to cool down after a long summer because while the capsaicin in peppers may be hot on the tongue, it has an overall cooling effect on the body. These recipes make the most of the smallest members of the pepper family that pack the largest flavor.
- Creamy jalapeno and spinach dip
- Spicy sweet potato soup with greens
- Canned pickled jalapeño peppers
- Spicy pickled peppers — not canned
- Peppered corn spoonbread
- Grilled stuffed peppers
