RECIPE BACKSTORY
Okay so my dad is a pepper garden fanatic and this year he bought more plants than his garden could fit. He had a few left over and gave them to me to start my own pepper garden. I've never planted a thing in my life, at least not that I could remember anyway and was nervous that I would kill the plants as I dont have a green thumb. Surprisingly the plants came out great and I saw some banana peppers. I felt like making salsa but had recently ran out of tomatoes so decided I'd play around with the banana peppers and see what would come out of it. To my surprise, something I will definately be preparing once I see more peppers in my garden :o)
