I recently got my hands on some purple peppers from Whole Foods! I had never seen these before, they are totally new to me! From what I have read, they have green flesh on the inside and taste bitter and earthy like green bell peppers.
Purple peppers are harvested before they mature into green peppers. And the green ones eventually ripen into red peppers! So depending on when you harvest a bell pepper determines what color it will be. The earlier stages are less sweet, so the purple pepper will be the least sweet of all bell peppers.
Purple peppers, because they are a rare find, tend to be more expensive than any green, red, yellow, or orange pepper. But I couldn’t resist their beauty and I can’t wait to cook up something fun and colorful with them tomorrow! Any recommendations for favorite dishes involving purple peppers?
