Followers of this site know one of my favorite places is the Manassas Farmers Market. I saw some red jalapeños and some figs, and I was off to the races. (Well, walking back to the car.) Now we have a primer on practical pepper protocol; the proclivity of heat provided is practically done by pepper size. Pint size peppers provide the most powerful punch. (Peter Piper would be so proud.) So in short, don’t do this if you are afraid of heat. I will warn you this is hot, hot, hot! I hope you survive and like it.
