July 21, 2009

As I promised, this is the first of the recipes from my chili pepper first harvest of the year.

Hot JimThese in the pictures are Hot Jim, similar to the Big Jim: these chilies are hybrids, I love to harvest them green for this thai-style recipe.


Use any variety of green chili, but hot and fleshy ones are better.
