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.
Maybe your friends/restaurants are sourcing the good ones!

I find half the time they are as mild as tomatoes (some restaurants), but others they are face-burning.

Hard to say - I have a notoriously low tolerance for spicy hot things. My son would always tease me about having no idea how to get to "flavor town". 🙂
