Market Watch: Chili Peppers

thai bird chilis

The Farmer’s Markets are overflowing with different kinds of hot peppers this week, from these tiny Thai bird chilis to the long, hot and sweet Hungarian peppers. If you look around, you might even find some of the world’s hottest peppers. Forget habaneros, I’ve also seen the naga bhut jolokia — possibly the hottest chili in the world — at a few of the city’s Greenmarkets. Next week I’ll be posting about how to cook with these peppers without killing yourself, so if you see some for sale and you’re curious go ahead and pick them up.
