There is so much gorgeous fruit at the Farmer’s Markets these days. I couldn’t resist these beautiful plums, sold by the peck and half peck. They are not too sweet, and their skins are slightly tart. I love the variance in color, it makes a pretty picture.
I harvested peppers a couple days ago, serranos and jalapenos. Not nearly a peck. The serranos are not hot but the jalapenos are. Arse backwards. I wasn’t expecting such heat, so soon in the season, and made the mistake of eating one off the vine. Yowza.
I’ll be looking at plum and pepper recipes today. I’m not quite ready to start pickling yet, so I’ll do something fresh with the peppers. Heirloom tomato salsa, perhaps. Or gazpacho.
