Out of the Blue

Happy Easter to all who are celebrating, and happy Sunday to those who are not. This holiday has an additional significance around here. Though it's been spring for over a week, when we moved a bit further north a few years ago we were warned that we should expect late winter frosts, and to never do outdoor planting until after Easter. Sure enough, we had frost last week, but the low in the forecast this week is 33°F for three nights in a row. Now that is one shockingly precise rule-of-thumb.

Here’s Why Jalapeño Peppers Are Less Spicy Than Ever.

Hadn't noticed - just smelling them still nearly melts the lining from my nostrils. Eating one still makes me think my face is going to melt off.

It's not like I eat a ton of them regularly myself so I likely wouldn't notice the difference anyway. And maybe they're not getting less hot but just people eating more hotter varieties of pepper more regularly. I see ghost and scotch varieties advertised in so many things now. I can't bother with hot peppers anyway. That's what hot sauce is for. I have a 1/2 dozen, varying in heat, and I definitely want something that actually tastes good and doesn't just burn my mouth. My go to is Louisiana Hot Sauce - perfect balance of taste and heat for me. Then there's Franks, Cholula , Tabasco - red and green, love the green on scrambled eggs! I wish I could find the other blends of Louisiana Hot Sauce, their green and garlic sauces. I've always liked Chinese chili garlic sauces. Anyone use those taco sauces?
