Padron Peppers: Santa Cruz Farmers Market (Wed.)

The Padron Peppers look similar to jalapenos but have a very different flavor.  We picked them up at the SC downtown farmers market on Wednesday from Oso Velloso Farm.  They are pretty cute and great for a bite size accompaniment.  We pan fried them in olive oil to a soft-ish texture, blackening the skin and then sprinkled them with some course sea salt.  You can grab a stem and take a mild-pepper bite.  I have heard that one in ten are hot but I haven’t landed one yet!
