Picking a Pepper
I found myself at Whole Foods last week staring blankly at their large chile peppers selection. The signs above the peppers gave involved descriptions of where they were from, what was mild and fruity, and what was deadly but there was no correlation to the actual chiles. So while I knew each one’s life story, I wasn’t sure which basket of peppers it described. Unsure of what to buy, I took a small selection to figure it out later. Maricel E. Presilla’s A World of Peppers in this moth’s Saveur should help avoid confusion the next time around.
