Last spring when we were visiting a produce market/garden center, we saw pots of Poblano pepper plants. We don't have luck growing peppers in our garden because we don't have enough sustained heat and sun for the growing season they need. But we thought it would be fun to try one in a pot and leave it in the greenhouse,
When we got the plant it had three tiny peppers set and a few more blooms. In time those produced peppers. The little plant grew and bloomed and produced all summer, and this weekend Tom harvested the final crop.
Poblano peppers are not too hot and they have a wonderful flavor. I use them in my version of shrimp and grits.
To preserve them, I halve and seed them and roast them.
Then I dice them and store them in the freezer.
With the peppers I harvested through the summer, I have quite a few. I think I'll have to find another way to use them.
