on the menu: padron peppers
This past weekend, while shopping at the Fort Mason farmers market, I came across Pardon peppers – one of my favorite treats to make as an appetizer for dinner parties. They literally melt in your mouth and leave a lingering flavor that makes you want to grab another. Last night I made a batch for Eric and I to munch on while watching the Olympics and before I knew it the bowl was gone. He had polished off the entire bowl – they are that delicious. Plus, they only take about five minutes to make, which is a huge bonus!
Bon appetit friends!
