Farming from a beautiful part of the world in Extremadura, Spain, our grower Antonio is a real believer in the power of biodiversity on his farm. In fact, it was the first farm in Extremedura that became 100% organic. “The main thing about organic farming is the soil. You need only the plants, insects and trees to balance the soil. If you can imagine, 14 years ago there was no life here on the farm. With organic fertilisation, with the plants, herbs and the leaves of the trees we have created life in the soil. Do you know there’s more life in a small amount soil than the population on Earth? We hope to preserve the balance for years and years. Some of our fruit trees are 40 years old. In conventional farming this would never be possible.” Antonio calls his farm one of the best places to grow in all of Spain. “I love organic farming, it’s a pleasure.”
Leave cutting your peppers as near to serving time as possible, to avoid losing their crispness. Give them a quick rinse before you cut them, it is easiest if you slice them in half and then remove the stalk and seeds. They are great in stir-fry dishes, and can be roasted. You should keep your peppers in the fridge wrapped up. They will begin to soften with time, so if you are putting them into a salad you should use them as soon as possible, when they are at their crunchiest! If you are using a bit at a time, ensure they are kept in a sealed container in your fridge to preserve for longer. Suitable for home freezing.
