How to Choose Fresh Chilies (Hot Peppers)


While you may always grow your own hot peppers, they are becoming much more readily available commercially. If your local supermarket does not carry at least two or three different varieties, they can easily be ordered from mail-order supply houses. However, no matter what variety of fresh hot chiles you may be selecting, choose only those that are fresh looking, smooth skinned, firm, and generally untwisted. Look for those that are bright colored and shiny. Avoid any peppers that are cracked, limp, or shriveled or that show black spots or signs of mold.
