I ordered a fajita platter at a local Appleby's Restaurant
recently and found something new on my plate -- 
remember, New Yorkers never meet up with hot peppers
except for the little round ones which are always part of a 
standard salad bar....

On this occasion, however, there was a strange looking green
pepper on the plate. It was shaped like my thumb, very,
very green, very, very firm, and since I love green peppers, I
picked it up and tasted it. The outside flesh was absolutely
just like a pungeant regular green pepper, and I munched
the whole thing happily but avoided the seeds. Then, of course,
I stole one off of my hubby's plate....

Did I actually have my first jalapenos..?  Are they usually
pickled..? Does pickling make them stronger..?
