A perfectly pleasant pepper parcel makes a pleasing hostess gift. Don't you think?
Total Time: 5 minutes
Last week I harvested what I thought would be the last of the Fall vegetables. I guess someone forgot to mention that to the pepper plants. But, it was a nice surprise and came in handy for a last minute hostess gift.
I left about 1 1/2" of stem on the peppers when I picked them. That was to make sure they stayed "sealed" and preserve their freshness as long as possible. I even pulled off a few leaves by accident, but that came in handy.
I took a rubber band to secure the peppers in a bit of a bouquet, wrapping it tightly so the ones inside wouldn't fall out. Then I tied a piece of ribbon around it to hide the rubber band. I thought the rust colored ribbon contrasted well with the bright green of the peppers.
There you have it! A simple bouquet of peppers makes a great hostess gift when you perk it up with a little ribbon. Much better than a reused shopping bag full of produce, don't you think?
