What not to do with your Chilli Peppers!!!

Ok the weather has been wet most of the week and although today was better and we had some sun and blue skies I was gardening so still didn't get to the allotment at all...maybe the weather will hold out tomorrow too and then I might get a bit done but I won't hold my breath.

Anyway I thought I would take this opportunity to show you my little 'oopsie' with my chillis.

I picked some green ones off the plant and had them in my pocket....foolishly when I took them out my pocket I put them on the windowsill where the sun proceeded to bleach the colour out of them!!

Of course they are still edible but don't look exactly appetizing anymore...guess these ones will be going into mince and stuff as opposed to colourful stir-fries!!!

On the plus side though....for the first time ever my bell peppers are turning red!!!! (Oh and if you wonder why the picture looks so funny it's because I took it from outside the greenhouse.)

  1. I guess the sun really did bleach those chillis,at least it didn't harm the flavor.

  2. Strange that the sun bleached them as it should ripen them - whay colour should they turn into when fully ripe?

    I thought you were going to say that they were washed in your jeans pocket!

  3. The weather has been horrendous here today, no chance to get to the allotment at all, in fact I think it might be under a foot of rainwater by now. I haven't seen anything like those bleached chilies before, I hope they're still tasty for you.

  4. Any whiter they could have been mistaken for chicken fillets. lol.


keep it clean...keep it relevant...I look forward to reading your comments!!
