What says community more than this?
Yep, that’s a five-gallon bucket full of hot banana peppers.
You see, a few weeks ago, a friend dropped off a gallon Ziploc bag full of peppers, along with a 4-ounce jar of sweet hot mustard she’d made.
If you want the recipe, let me know, she wrote on a note attached to the Ziploc.
We tasted and saw that it was good, so we asked for the recipe and ended up with 24 of our own 4-ounce jars of goodness. Christmas presents, we thought to our frugal selves.
And then this happened:
I e-mailed my friend to say, “We loved the mustard! If you have any extra banana peppers, we’d be happy to take them off your hands.”
A few hours later, this was in our dining room.
