“Adapted from the On The Farm column by Dean Mullis of Laughing Owl Farm in Albemarle NC. I make this in the summer when peppers are in season and freeze it for winter use. This is a very easy, versatile recipe that you should at least double. The uses for this recipe are endless. Two of our favorite ways are on a summer tomato sandwiches and spread on crackers with fresh goat cheese.”
