We bought our first fruit-bearing plant a few days ago. Walking back home from grocery shopping we noticed a pepper plant in front of a flower shop. The long red and green fingers of cayenne were calling out to us. Tempted by its vibrant colors and assumed spiciness, we decided to purchase one.
Now we have an endless supply of hot peppers. I’m thrilled since we haven’t been able to get a consistent supply of fresh chili peppers in France. These cayenne peppers do have a tasty powerful kick, as we’ve eaten a good amount already. We’re pleased, and I plan on picking the longer ones to make chili powder out of them.
Bring on the spice! J’aime très épicé.
