Enjoya peppers hit Trader Joe’s Markets, and I’m very excited about it! Since entering the U.S. marketplace just a couple of years ago, these beauties from Holland have mostly been in higher-end grocery stores, so I’m thrilled they’ll be more accessible now.Have you tried an Enjoya pepper yet?
Have you seen one!? Off the screen, that is?
You should definitely check out when I introduced them to you here, to see them in all of their glory.
Over the past year, I have been so happy to be working directly with the Enjoya folks from Holland, creating a handful of unique recipes, that are delicious and show off the beauty and unique aesthetic of these peppers.
I mean seriously, could a pepper be more beautiful than this!?
It’s very exciting news that Enjoya peppers hit Trader Joe’s. At the moment you’ll find them in their west coast stores. Just click on “stores” to find a Trader Joe’s near you here.
Keep your eyes peeled for them — they’re packaged like this . . .Enjoya peppers are sweet, but not super sweet, very crunchy and crisp, and a bit juicy. They are more dense than other peppers, each one weighing about 3/4 pound!
I love, love roasted peppers. And my favorite thing about the Enjoya, is that they retain all of their stunning color and striped pattern, when they’re roasted and peeled. In addition, their “meaty” texture isn’t lost in this process.
Just look at this . . .Last summer I let you know about my first three Enjoya pepper recipes, and below are a few of my newest creations.
You can find the descriptions and detailed recipes on the Enjoya site, here — or click on each recipe title to jump over.
