Ever wonder why it’s called eggplant. We are used to the big, beautiful purple eggplant but the original one looked like an egg.
This is eggplant season and not only can you find the lovely purple ones but some of the originals as well as varieties from all over the world. And there are lots of things you can do with eggplant that don’t include the parmesan.

Padron Peppers

Padron Peppers are widely available at the markett

Padron peppers are the world’s fastest easiest and among the tastiest appetizers. Blister them in a pan of hot oil and then sprinkle with salt or step it up with a great blend of spices from ‪#‎BerkmansSpices‬.
Padrón peppers are small, with an elongated, conic shape. The taste is mild, but some can be quite hot, which property has given rise to the popular saying ” Os pementos de Padrón, uns pican e outros non” (Padrón peppers, some are hot, some are not)
Typically, there is no way of determining whether a given pepper will be hot or mild, short of actually eating it, though some maintain that smelling each cooked Padrón for spice prior to eating is a good indicator. But the easiest way to avoid the heat –stick with the small to tiny padrons, the bigger the hotter.
