Namely, we have too many! You guys haven't seen our tiny backyard garden for a while, have you? It's really taken off!
First came the cayenne peppers and the grape tomatoes, but Mr. Pie has been keeping up with those pretty consistently. They're starting to all ripen at once now so I imagine some tomato sauce or salsa or something is in our future. The jalapenos are coming slowly and steadily, not quite out of hand yet, and we're still waiting on the large tomatoes and the carrots to fully ripen and grow. BUT. The green peppers are totally out of control. We have them coming out of our ears!
Here's the close up of the bowl:
So here's our dilemma: we can use tomatoes for tons of things, and the cayenne we've dried and ground to powder for cooking... but what the HECK to we do with 3 dozen green peppers?? We've bbq'd a few for dinner, but didn't like that as much as we like the zucchini or squash the same way. We've stuffed them and baked them a few times, but you can't only do that so much.
I haven't braved canning just yet and don't really have the money at the moment for those supplies. So I'm looking for ideas either to preserve them somehow, or maybe bake them in something ala zucchini bread... or is there another meal that you like using green peppers?
Thanks in advance!
