This week’s bag features chili peppers! The Hawaiian chili pepper is a super spicy variety used in various local food preparations in Hawaii. It grows easily, often without being planted. These peppers are small, but with a lot of kick! Just one or two peppers go a long way in whatever you cook up. Add to any kind of dish that has liquid – chicken lu’au, paprikash, pork adobo, goulash, split pea soup. After cooking, take the peppers out, or at least warn people! If a recipe calls for a dash of cayenne or red pepper flakes, substitute with fresh minced chili pepper. What else is in this week’s bag?
