This Week's Featured Product is Peppers

Bell peppers change from green to red, orange, yellow, or purple as they are left on the vine to mature. As bell peppers mature, their sugar content increases, so they become sweeter and develop more of vitamins A and C.

Classically, sweet bell peppers pair well with squash, eggplant, onions, and tomatoes, although their use is practically unlimited with any summer vegetable. They taste great roasted, sauteed, or raw. Add them raw to salads, cooked into stews, or pureed into sauces.

You can purchase peppers from Bautista Ranch or another of the local farmers selling peppers.

Bautista Ranch is a second generation family farm. They have been farming at the same location in Stockton for over 60 years and grow a wide variety of vegetables including summer squash, a rainbow array of peppers and heirloom tomatoes.

Once you get your purchases home, check out our delicious recipes using peppers.
