A Few Last Harvests

Well into the month of October we decided it was time to strip and compost the pepper plants. That first killing frost could happen any day and we need to get them off before then. If the frost hits the fruit they will get a funny flavor.

Since I have already roasted some and pickled some these will be sold to a local farmer's market vendor that has put in a request for them. For those of you who have lots of peppers below are links to previous posts on Peppers with recipes or instructions.

    We string the late peppers and okra...makes wonderful decoration and stores our seeds for next year.

  5. Oh my goodness look at all those peppers!!! How wonderful!!!

  6. Great harvest lady!

    You can also string the peppers to dry and then ground later or flake for hot pepper flakers or pepper similar to cayenne pepper.
