This month we’ll explore peppers – sweet and spicy. Enjoyed in the Americas for thousands of years, their introduction to the Eastern Hemisphere revolutionized cuisines. What makes some of them so spicy? What are the best ways to handle and prepare peppers? We’ll explore all of this in this month’s presentation.

We’ll also continue with our exploration of locally available herbs, this month looking at pipicha, a Mexican herb increasingly found in Greenmarkets around the city.

The focus on the month’s featured vegetables includes historical information, nutritional information, growing these veggies in the NY area, trivia, and fun facts. Included will be information about GrowNYC, our Greenmarket farmers markets, and what is currently in season. .
