Hot Peppers and a Carrot?
[Return to Topics]

While sitting around the kitchen table with the inlaws this weekend. The question came up. Why do store bought hot peppers have a carrot in the jar? Some said for decoration, others said has to be more of a reason.. Any guesses?

I just called a friend of mine who is a "Hot Pepper Expert" He puts up a lot of peppers, he said that the carrot is for color in the jar. But! The carrot will absorb the heat from the peppers and will be hotter than the peppers, If you bite into it it will set you on fire!

Well,good thru over 100 pepper canning recipes and found NO reference to adding a carrot,other than one recipe which mentioned adding other veggie pieces for color/texture as in salsa's.Guess you could call the Mfg and "demand" the lowdown on

Could it be the same reason they put that grub worm in the tequilla bottle?
