The color of the pepper changes depending on how long it's left on the plant. Green = young, red = more mature.
Whats with the japs? Been using them for years. My original post is regarding peppadews. If I want extreme heat, I'll get some bhut jolokia or whatever the one that recently past the ghost on the heat scale.

Guess there's some confusion going on... I was just trying to point out that a red jalapeno is not "chipolte".

I too, discovered peppadews in an olive bar at our local co-op. It was love at first bite! I use them in pasta salad and on sandwiches. Might have to try stuffing them one of these days with some chicken salad for something different.

Great read about pappadews @ Garden of Eaden.

Gotcha! I meant that if I were to talk about red japs, it would be in their most recognized form, smoked and in adobo, chipotles. I've used the dried chipotle, seeded, toasted and ground into a powder. I prefer making my chili powder with various dried chilis.
