I feel like every time I go out back, there are more jalapeños popping up in my garden. They are going crazy right now and there are a ton of new buds forming as well. They have different heats at different stages and our favorite right now is when it’s transitioning from green to red. That almost purplish-brown color is so flavorful, and packs a little kick.
I always try to promote eating local and knowing and supporting your local farmers but there are just some amazing foods that don’t grow in my Los Angeles backyard… of even in the United States for that matter. Although many fruits and vegetables that were once considered just tropically grown can now be found on certain US based farms and orchards, there are many super foods that do better in other climates, like Noni, Acai Berry and this new one… Baobab.
