Pimientos de Padron.

If you don't know these, they are small green peppers from the town of Padron in Galicia in north west Spain. You get them in nearly every bar in Spain, just flash fried and served with some sea salt. You hold the stalk and pull the "fruit" away with your teeth. They are mild and sweet, sometimes a little bitter but approx 1 in 10 is a fire cracker, not as spicy as a chilly, but enough to make you sweat.

Unbelievably, I've just seen them for sale at my neighbours stall at the Viadukt. 1 Kg is already in my bag.

AHHHHH, I almost just had a food-gasm. Grumpy, can you get me some too? Maybe not a whole kilo, but a couple big handfuls--especially if he is running low. I might be able to stop by tonight but was planning on coming by to see you again tomorrow for sure... I would be so grateful.

Jalopenos! Incredible cure for gastric virus and speeds up all digestive processes. Burning sensation might be experienced somewhere later though!

erm, Jacek... Hate to break it to you, but those aren't jalepenos... These are jalepenos. Although I do agree, they are great for all sorts of things.

Ahh, call it what you like. But if you taste what you posted compared to what I posted, you would have corrected you too. They taste completely different... The pepper family is such a beautiful thing.

Re: Pimientos de Padron.

Oh i so so so love them ...usually you should get them as well in the really large Migros and Coop's in the veggie section where you can pick your own veges.

We love to skewer them alternating with meat etc when we do a BBQ in summer and my fave is to flash fry them in olive oil and add a drizzle of balsamico.....YUMMO!

You can also stuff them with cheese and bake in the oven...equally delish)

Grin,,,,couldn'thelp myself and had to add my 2 cent worth))

Re: Pimientos de Padron.

yum! When I lived in Barcelona, once a week we had a guy from Galicia come round to our street with a bell selling them and a guy from Valencia selling oranges the same way. I used to get through 30 oranges a week and a sack of the pimientos. Try with a splash of best quality Jerez wine vinegar while still hot!
