Last year we grew a very appetizing pepper called a Chervena Chushka Pepper. Chervena Chuska has outstanding flavor and is super sweet. I am betting the sugar content of this little gem is off the charts. This heirloom beauty is originally from Bulgaria. You really have to taste this pepper to believe it. Have you seen these new hybrid peppers being marketed both in the grocery store and at other seed companies as “snacking peppers” or “lunch box” peppers? Well they can’t hold a candle to this open pollinated heirloom. You can stuff these peppers with quinoa, rice, or a mixture of cheese and beans and then bake.
These peppers can be roasted over a burner or under a broiler, then peel and puree with hummus or slice and add to grilled eggplant and mozzarella sandwiches with fresh basil.
Be sure to look for these this summer at Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce
