Of course you can pick a peck of them, or perhaps you would prefer to pickle them, but however you prefer them, peppers are positively perfect.
As a group, peppers come in a wide range of varieties, colors, and heat levels. Some of the most popular are bell peppers—in three colors—as well as jalapeños, ancho chili peppers, and other spicy delights. More adventurous eaters may speak of the blistering heat of the ghost pepper, but everyday recipes are about subtlety and flavor enhancement, something the right pepper can do delightfully.
What is important about cooking with peppers is simply letting them bring the right amount of heat: too little and they leave you wanting more; too much and their flavor is simply overpowering. You’ll be amazed how versatile peppers can be, adding their distinctive flavors to jellies, meats, and more. For something peppery, sweet, and creamy, Grilled Rainbow Peppers are perfect.
