Growing on the High Plains: Peppers - Part Two!

Aug 3, 2017

Chili peppers come in all shapes and sizes.

Get a tissue, because I'm about to set your sinuses ablaze.

On today's installment of Growing on the High Plains, let's slice into part two of our pepper prose. We'll head south where temperatures flare, not just in the sky but in the spicy oil of the mighty chili. From jalepenos to Thai peppers, we'll talk about the many varieties available.  We'll also discuss the Scoville scale, and I'll even share a personal pepper pickle that resulted from a skirmish with a spicy salsa. (Wow, just talking about the spicy heat of the chili oil is making my eyes water!)
