Padron peppers are a variety of peppers originating from Galicia in Spain. They are about 5cm long and green, ranging from bright green to yellowish green, but occasionally red. While their taste is usually mild, a few may be particularly hot: apparently the heat depends on the amount of water and sunlight it receives during its growth, in addition to temperature. They are in season from late May until late October, but thanks to greenhouse plantations you can find them all year round.
Padron peppers are usually served as tapas. Personnally, I've never been a great fan of peppers, whether regular peppers or spicy peppers, but I absolutely love Padron peppers. And it's a great way to add to your variety of daily vegetables.
Because the magic happens in the kitchen!
