Now that our gardens are all coming into harvest, it’s time to think what to drink with those dishes we are making from our hot peppers. I love jalapenos and will make salsa and poppers. Along with that I will make meatballs & peppers, & sausage & peppers and just about anything I can put the hot peppers in.

When your mouth is on fire, you usually run to get the glass of water. Next time, run and get a glass of a Semi Sweet wine. Wine such as a Riesling or Gewurztraminer. They do make these wines dry, so make sure it a semi sweet bottle that you grab. The sweetness in the wine will react with the capsaicin in the peppers and cool down the heat in your mouth. It will make eating hot peppers much more enjoyable.
