Garden 34th Street: Pepper Party

Haven't made it upstate to visit the garden in a few weeks, but I've been enjoying the sudden progress of the chili hot plants in my window. A recent flower boom has given way to a new batch of baby peppers, and there are more buds on the way. Meanwhile, I'll continue to play bumble bee with my little paintbrush and hope the hot August sun continues.

And yes, these puppies pack quite the kick...

Do you have any suggestions for how to use the hot chili peppers? I've cut a few of them up and added TINY TINY bits to salads (macaroni salad, pasta salad) but when they hit my throat I start coughing. What type of cooking can you do with them that will dull the heat?

I'll post some things in the coming weeks. In the meantime, you can pop them in the freezer in a ziploc--they keep really well!
