Orange habanero peppers


For all those that immediately thought "Boot Camp II, assignment 2", yup.


My dad asked me to do some shots of uncommon foods in Costa Rica for his blog, where he´s documenting all these weird looking things that grow in your back yard and can be eaten. No problem... just got out the strobist lunch box and went to work, like I was doing Assignment 2 all over again =)


What´s weird about peppers? About the pepper itself, nothing. What most people don´t expect is that something that hot would be consumed in a place like Costa Rica, where food is mostly bland with little spice. A good reason not to go happily poking around the little jar full of orange thingies they put at your table in restaurants <grin>
