how oily can peppers get?
i've seen them glistening and maybe droplets inside, but last night, i saw a pepper on another level.
i sliced a red bhut in half, and there was a lot of liquid inside. a little pool in each half. i dipped a toothpick into it, and it had the tasty bhut aroma and was very spicy. there was so much liquid that i brought the pepper halves to the garbage and poured them out before chopping them up. it's not like the pepper was completely filled (probably not even a third filled), but several drops fell out. like, visible amount of liquid. i had bhuts from the same plant last year (it's an overwinter), and none were like that.
you guys ever seen that before? i'm kicking myself for not taking pics, but i was hungry and had to throw it on a pizza. also, duh, i should've just drizzled that juice on the pizza.
curious to find out if other pods from the same plant are as juicy. it's got several ripe ones on there now. will take pics if they are.
