Lelly's SPT Theme
See these neat little peppers?
They are a new type we are trying this year. They are shaped like bell peppers
but are a Dark Green

And they are HOT!!! Today I was pretty darn fast getting to the sink to rinse my mouth and tongue off.

I am sure if you look close enough there are blisters on my tongue!!! NO REALLY, I now know my husband needs glasses because he couldn't see any...but TRUST ME...they are there!!!!

Ouch. Pepper burn is NOT fun.

Jan said...

Boy, how unfun. I love me some hot peppers though. I really do. I have that same bush. I will have to post my tongue too :)

Jeanette said...

Oooo! Bet those would make some yummy salsa! Sorry about your tongue though.

Sarah said...

I love your tongue picture. All I can say is ouch.

Ouch! I love salsa but I can't stand the hot kind. My huband thinks the hotter the better! Sorry about the tongue. I understand plain white yogurt takes the pain away and prevents those blisters. When we lived in Texas, I worked with two Cardiologist from India. They were always having us over for dinner. As you know their food is really, really hot. We noticed they always had plain white yogurt with every meal on the center of their table. One day I asked why and they said it works like magic to take the hot away and it won't burn your tongue.

Are they poblano peppers? Ouch, especially if you are not expecting the hot. Wow! They look great on the vine though, and I am pretty sure I can see the blisters.

Janiece said...

I don't remember the name is of these HOT things.
Maybe Poblano is the correct ones.
Kirk told me to eat a tomato, and it really did help with the pain.
The tomatoes are about ready so I can start the salsa!!! We have been known to have fresh salsa and chips for dinner!

Wow those are some big peppers... I can see that it is totally red on the end.
I am such a wimp when it comes to hot stuff. You'd think living here all my life & having Mexican food all the time I'd be used to it. But NO!
