I have called myself officially done with jalapenos. The plants are still going strong, but I am now giving the peppers away. Even though I am not sure why they have done so well, I plan to use the same variety and epsom salt next year.

More Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers
My four jalapeno plants have been producing like crazy this year. I am still undecided if it is the variety I planted or the epsom salt I added a few times in lieu of fertilizer. Over the course of four days I picked 100 peppers. Crazy me decided to halve and stuff them all in one day. I started that morning by halving and seeding each pepper. I put them in the fridge and took three pounds of cream cheese out of the fridge while I went to run errands. Back home I mixed the cream cheese with some salt and shredded cheeses. They I settled in to stuff 200 pepper halves. I had just enough homemade bread crumbs but ended up layering them in one big foil pan.
