Or an explosion of peppers, if I consider all the market stalls which featured varieties of the vegetable in all the vivid colors and all the shapes and sizes in which it comes. I brought home a poblano pepper (like the ones in the basket on the left), which was roasted and then added to my beloved roasted corn soup, giving a nice kick to its flavor and a lovely green tone to its color. I think that those in the foreground are Italian long peppers. I did not get any of them this time, favoring instead some Round of Hungary, which I roasted and froze to make this dip at a future date.
This is my submission to week #14 edition of Black and White Wednesday - A Culinary Photography Event created by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook. Savoring the weekly gallery is highly recommended: it's a very special mid-week treat.
The photo was shot in color and then converted to black and white.
This post contains the gallery of photos submitted to the event.
