Q: I got about a dozen jalapeño peppers from my CSA box. I don't know what to do with them, other than to make salsa, which I don't want to do. I cook family meals that a 4-year-old has to be able to eat, so really spicy meals are out of the question. What can I do with these?
Sent by SusanEditor: Susan, it sounds like using up the peppers gradually makes the most sense for your family, so how about roasting them and either freezing them or storing them in olive oil in the refrigerator? Then you can just add one or two to a dish as needed.
