Jalapeno Peppers (Organic)

Blue Moon Acres

$2.99

4 pieces

One of the milder chilis, the humble Jalapeño still packs a punch while maintaining the sweetness of the bell pepper. Usually picked while still green, Jalapeños can ripen into a deep red; so don’t be alarmed if you see a little red or yellow blush on your peppers. You may be looking at a little more heat and sweetness! When overripe, Jalapeños can be smoked, making delicious chipotles. Using that for inspiration, try something new by grilling your Jalapeños to really kick the flavor up a notch; or go the more traditional route and serve them raw in a pico de gallo. Just remove the seeds to adjust for the heat. If you want to add a little acidity to your spice, try pickling your Jalapeños and top off your nachos with them.

Blue Moon Acres

Pennington, NJ

Blue Moon Acres all started with a passion for high-quality, locally-produced food. With backgrounds in natural foods-wholesaling and farming, owners Jim and Kathy Lyons wanted to pursue a healthier, more sustainable form of agriculture. Together they realized their dreams to own and operate a farm. When Blue Moon first opened its doors in 1992, it did so as a CSA—Community Supported Agriculture operation. The following year saw the first harvest of micro greens and the first sale to a New York City restaurant. Word spread from chef to chef, and what was once a small backyard operation soon became the most trusted name in the business. During this time, Jim and Kathy raised three children, the eldest of whom, Ashley, now heads the sales and marketing department. In 2007, with an eye towards expanding their product offering, Blue Moon Acres acquired a 63-acre New Jersey Grown farm on agriculturally-preserved land in Pennington, New Jersey. It was here that several years later, Blue Moon built their first farm market, in which both the farm’s Organic produce and other locally-made goods are sold. Today, the farm operates with an ever-increasing focus on sustainability via the use of bio diesel farm equipment and geothermal heating and cooling techniques. Looking to the future, Blue Moon’s focus will remain on sustainability and soil biology, which results in disease-resistant, better-tasting, more nutrient-dense foods.
