A Taste of Padron Peppers

We decided it was time to pick a few of our Padron Peppers. They're about the size of my thumb and still quite young and green but appear to have stopped growing in size.

I'm sure that the longer you leave them the hotter they'll get and although most of them are relatively mild about 1 in 50 is reckoned to be fiery hot. I think we had one really hot one and the others had a bit of a kick but not too much.

We cut them in half, sprinkled with oil and sea salt and grilled for a few minutes - very nice.

We grew these from seed and they've not been too much trouble so I think we'll be growing more in the future.
