Peppers are another member of the nightshade family and offer a huge selection of varieties including red, orange, yellow and purple sweet peppers, and a dizzying array of beautiful hot peppers (often called chilies) in many colors and shapes. Ripe peppers, especially red ones, are extremely high in vitamin C. Most peppers turn color when ripe. They can be eaten raw, stuffed, chopped into sauces, salsas, stews and soups and in the case of hot peppers to add a fiery zing to almost any savory dish. The "hot" flavor in hot peppers is from the chemical capsaicin, which comes off onto hands when handling chilies, so be careful not to rub your eyes when preparing a spicy dish. Nutrients: vitamins A, C, K, and B6.
