Having read about them and been intrigued, at last today I found a bag at Trader Joe's. I followed the suggestion on the bag and seared a few in Spanish olive oil, into which I had infused some garlic. Sprinkled them with salt before eating.
So --- what's so special? They were nice, tasted green and vegetable-y, and one of them was even the fiery hot that makes them like a Russian roulette pepper. But basically I was kind of disappointed. Is there a more interesting way to prepare them? What am I missing?
