Fresh from the Garden – Peppers! (recipe round up)

If you’re lucky and have a garden, are part of a CSA, or just have a friendly gardening neighbor, you are probably getting a bounty of fresh produce right about now. I thought I would highlight a few of my favorite recipes using some of these fresh veggies – I’ve already done a round up for zucchini, and today is peppers – bell peppers, banana peppers, jalapenos!

First up, Pickled Jalapeno Peppers. These are SO good! You can also do pickled banana peppers with this recipe.


Jalapeno Salsa, also another one of my favorites.


Homemade Pepper Relish, sweet and spicy.


Another Pickled Banana Peppers recipe. I like these a lot!


And, Jalapeno Poppers, or in this case, Hot Banana Pepper Poppers! These are made a little bit skinny with turkey bacon and reduced fat cream cheese. Yummers.

And if you missed the zucchini round up, check it out here!

Do you have veggies coming out of your ears? Or are you like me, and really wishing you had a garden?! I am fortunate that my neighbor shares his bounty, and I have several Farmer’s Markets in the area around where I live. Hopefully I’ll have my garden next year…in the mean time, what are you cooking up with in season fruits and veggies?
