Sweet Peppers

Though they may look like a really hot pepper, these skinny long red peppers are actually very sweet! They are excellent raw but are also good cooked and are often called frying peppers. Just a simple sautée with olive oil and garlic is all you need to do. They are called Jimmy Nardellos, named after a man who saved the seed from his Italian immigrant relatives. Before he died he gave the seed to the Seed Savers Exchange, an organization that saves and distributes heirloom seeds. We’ve been growing them ever since they were introduced to us during our first farming apprenticeship.
