I can’t stop raving about my favorite organic CSA farmer Peter Paniccia of Pietro’s Coop and his hot peppers. This past year, he showed me a really great way to cook these peppers.
It was so yummy that I pretty much ate the whole pan of peppers myself – don’t ask what happened to my stomach the next day! Next time I will show some restraint (or maybe not)
Peter Paniccia’s Stir Fried Hot Peppers with Bread Crumbs

- Heat olive oil in a pan.
- Add garlic and sauté for a minute.
- Add the hot peppers and sauté on medium heat until the peppers soften (8 – 10 minutes).
