My husband is an inshore fishing captain so he always seems to know when the shrimp are running. He has been up early throwing his cast net in the Intracoastal this summer. We have gallons of shrimp each morning. They haven’t run in so long, so I will be happy to stock the freezers again. We typically can get shrimp a few times of year over here on the East Coast of Florida. Our little gardeners have been picking peppers daily. I’ve been trying to teach them how to check for ripeness. The little one, who is three, just picks, but my six year old is starting to understand their change in color and what the little white stretch marks mean. Here’s a good article with a good photo for teaching: How to Check for the Hotness of Jalapenos.
Even though we’ve been giving the peppers away to neighbors and friends, I still have extras so I researched some new recipes. Here’s some Jalapeno recipes, and a few using both jalapeno and shrimp! ENJOY!
