Picking Peppers to Bring the Heat

Picking Peppers to Bring the Heat

Peppers add great flavor to Tuscan dishes and a little bite too. A few rules of thumb to control the heat:

  • Size: The bigger the pepper the less fiery it is.
  • Maturity: More green means less capsaicin (the stuff that brings the heat).
  • Seeds: Remove these to help reduce the spice level.
