Presenting Peppers and Hot Pepper Oil












Our peppers added to our neighbor's olive oil add punch to all manner of food.

Presenting this year's hot peppers, grown from seed, blooming on the balcony.




By the dozens.



Takes eating locally to a whole new level. And bringing the spice of this land to favorite foods.

  2. sounds wonderful....
    I use my peppers to make pepper sauce. Just vinegar a small amt. of oil and jars filled with peppers. So good on all sorts of foods, from beans to soups.

    Your plants are so beautiful.

  3. That's one thing I didn't try to plant: peppers. I love the pictures and realizing that maybe it's not really so hard to grow peppers after all...

    1. We either use just the oil or the peppers plus the oil, depending on the dish- great flavor!
