These hot baby peppers are on my Valentine’s Day menu. Yes, I am already thinking of this holiday feast. But they also will be a succulent delicacy on coming Super Bowl Sunday.

(You can find jars of whole sweet cherry or piquant peppers without seeds in most grocery stores, in condiment or international food sections).
