If you were concerned about the long, conical peppers in this week’s share, they are Hungarian Frying Peppers, which are like a stay-crisper version of the sweet bell peppers, and not the same as the small-but-powerful jalapenos and cayenne peppers.
It’s truly tomato season! We will get both large Tomatoes and Cherry Tomatoes this week. Plus the farmers tell us to expect Cilantro, Garlic, Onion, and Peppers – both Red and Green sweet peppers, and Hot Peppers. We know that many people will be making salsa this week! It’s a great condiment when chopped finely or chop more coarsely to make a type of chopped salad. We should also receive Beets or Broccoli, which can become great do-ahead salads for a sticky summer Saturday.
