A Little History Of Sweet Mini Peppers

Since as far back as 2500 BC sweet peppers have been grown in Mexico. These peppers were traveled to great distances by Columbus. First to Spain and then to other parts of the world.

The Sweet Pepper comes from the Grossum Group or better known as Green Pepper, Bell Pepper, Sweet Pepper or Red Pepper. They are from the Solanaceae or commonly known as the Nightshade family. We grow these variety of species as annual vegetables, but they are a tropical perennial. The edible fruit is actually labeled as a berry. Who would have thought that one? It grows in a variety of colors such as green, yellow, orange, red, purple, chocolate and even white. As the color changes so does the flavor as it matures it gets sweeter and sweeter.

We love our peppers at the grocers and there are so many to pick from. We have found that the Sweet Mini Pepper are siblings of the our well known bell peppers. As we can see they have become a popular item to pick up at the store. However, these delicious little beauties are not what you think they are.

Yes, these vine Sweet Little Mini Peppers were developed by an early pioneer in transgenic biotechnology in the 1990’s by DNA Plant Technology. These Sweet Mini Peppers were sold under the brand, Master’s Touch. However they were distributed by Bionova Produce Inc. Being that they were created as a hybrid plant by technology these Sweet Mini Peppers will more than likely not reproduce and be sterile. Do not keep the seeds, sadly we probably can’t reproduce them.

Alternative To Using Sweet Mini Peppers

Sometimes when I make a recipe like I did here for you today with these Simple Raw Stuffed Mini Peppers I find out background research. It is not always a good find to know just what it is that we are eating. I think it is important to know and to know how it traveled and transformed throughout time.

I hope you like this recipe I made for you. Although, if you do not like genetically created foods then try using our good old fashion red bell peppers. (I definitely will from now on!) Slice them and use them to scoop up the stuffing. You can also use this stuffing as a filler in peta bread, toast spread, on a salad or on crackers (Three Easy Inexpensive Homemade Olive Oil Crackers). It is very versatile. I’m sure you will find other uses.

How To Make Simple Raw Stuffed Mini Peppers

I find that making these Simple Raw Stuffed Mini Peppers can vary in quantity since they are different in size. So I average about 6 sweet mini peppers, when cut in have you will have a dozen appetizers.Try to find the area of the pepper that lays down flat before cutting them in have. Wash them, cut the top green ends off and take out the seeds. Put aside until the filling is ready.

Drain and rinse the chickpeas and put them and the rest of the ingredients into a food processor (I use the Hamilton Beach Food Processor). Pulse it 5 times, making sure as not to make it mushy. The consistency should be lumpy. Take out the food processor blade and stir the mixture to completely combine it.
