These Are a Few of Our Favorite Peppers

weekly CSA produce share
Shishito and Güero peppers: our favorites!

Every once in a while, everything comes together in such a good way. Such as this week’s pickup from the CSA. We’d headed down to pick up our food, and, initially, we weren’t super-excited about what we were getting, because the planned harvest included roasted green chilies and quelites. While we’ll do something with either of them, those two are just not our favorites. Plus, we’d read that, last Wednesday, there were bonus Yellow Hot peppers or Güero peppers in the surplus basket. We pick up on Tuesdays, so we missed them last week, and we thought that they might all be gone by the following week. As you can see, that was not the case. Plus, the trading baskets were full of a variety of produce, so we didn’t feel badly about trading the green chilies and the quelites.

This week we picked up:

  • Red potatoes (4)
  • I’itoi onions (1 bunch)
  • Roasted green chilies (1 bag) — traded for more potatoes
  • Apples (4)
  • Shishito peppers (1 basket)
  • Quelites (1 bunch) — traded for more shishito peppers
  • Cucumbers (3)
  • Red onions (3)
