    Shire Born's Note:

    Adapted from the On The Farm column by Dean Mullis of Laughing Owl Farm in Albemarle NC. I make this in the summer when peppers are in season and freeze it for winter use. This is a very easy, versatile recipe that you should at least double. The uses for this recipe are endless. Two of our favorite ways are on a summer tomato sandwiches and spread on crackers with fresh goat cheese.

      I was given a box of green peppers and needed a recipe for them. This one worked very well, espacially as a dip for when friends came over. I made a large quantity and found that it kept in the refrigerator for about four days before turning sour. I'll freeze leftovers should there be a significant quantity next time as suggested. Great for me as it's very low sodium. I will make this again.
