Peppers seeds are an important ingredient to have on hand when you need a quick pick me up. There is just something about a spicy pepper that makes me want to taste it even more. Even though it may be chilly outside, you can enjoy the heat of these seeds any time of the year.
They are a natural appetite suppressant and are also a diuretic. This means they will keep you full for longer periods of time, and keep you from snacking before lunch. Plus, they will keep your breath in check, too.
These peppers have a very strong seed smell. They smell like they have been baking in a Mexican oven for days. They have lots of vitamin C in them too. And, as I said, lots of other good things. So, if you eat these peppers raw they are great for you.
If you roast them or slice them open, you can taste the peppers seeds. The skins will have the most flavor, but the seeds are where the real spice is. You should try and cut off a bit of each pepper to see how much flavor is left. If you love a hot cayenne pepper, you will love this seed.
If you want to enjoy a spicy taste, but not overheat, you can buy canned peppers. There is no reason to settle for canned peppers when you can pick them yourself and add your own seasonings. Try a habanero pepper for a hot, bold taste. Another choice is a Serrano pepper. It has a milder flavor. I used both for the recipes I prepared.
If you are not into roasting or baking, there are other ways to use these seeds. You can boil them and use the liquid as a sauce to make dips and spreads for sandwiches or potato chips. You can also use them in soups, stews, and other dishes. The possibilities are endless.
When buying them, be sure to ask about the freshness of the product. Some companies package their seeds in plastic and keep them in a warehouse for a long period of time before selling them. Others are just honest with you about the freshness of what they sell. When it is in it's freshest state, that is when you will know it is the real thing. Just be careful not to get the package in a hot car.
One very popular dish that uses peppers seeds is called pepper sampler. In this recipe, the seeds are roasted until they are almost black in color. Then they are added to hot oil and simmered until it is almost liquid. Then it is whisked in a blender to make smooth and creamy. This dish is very easy to make and it goes great on just about any kind of sandwich or appetizer.
For those who do not have much experience with seeds, consider taking a class. It would not hurt to learn a little bit about them before you decide to go ahead and order them from your local gardening store or seed company. There are quite a few to choose from. You can also read about different ways to store them and enjoy their freshness longer. Most people keep them in glass jars or airtight containers.
When you buy seeds, it is important that you don't just grab the first one you see. Take some time and compare the various brands. Make sure you buy them from a reputable source. The cheapest ones usually do not offer the best quality. If possible, try to buy seeds that are specially processed so they don't lose all of their valuable nutrients.
While you are at the store, check out the packaging. There should be a seal on the jar or can that ensures it is fresh. Once you have bought the seeds, you can start preparing the garden. Add some water to the soil and then plant your seeds.
As they grow, they will produce flowers and seeds. This is when you can transfer the whole plant into an indoor pot or container and let it get acclimated to the new environment. Within a few months, you should be able to harvest a nice amount of fresh fruit. It will taste delicious and ready in a short amount of time!
