Q: We went to a pick-your-own farm and came back with a bounty of small, fist-sized purple peppers. I’m not sure what to do with them, especially after cutting into one and finding it too bitter to eat. I’m hoping the whole batch doesn’t taste similarly. What can I do with them?

Editor: If they do end up tasting bitter, you might try roasting or grilling the peppers to bring out some sweetness. Diced raw, I bet they’d be excellent in a fruit salsa!

Readers, what ideas do you have for using up this load of peppers?
