I make quick pickles ( quickles? ) all the time and keep meaning to try a batch of real fermented dills.  Soon.   mjb.
One of the plants I did this year was red Caribbean habanero. Finally got some ripe ones:     The longer peppers one the outside are aji crystal, similar heat level to serrano. The red habs are hotter than basic orange ones, maybe twice as much.  A favorite use of habs is Jamaican jerk.

A favorite dish of mine is shortribs braised in dark beer with fennel bulb and tart cherries.   mjb.

Was just out picking some tomatoes and peppers. Have some habaneros that are ripe, looks like some Jamaican jerk style loin ribs or chicken this weekend!   And on a side note, peppers was a possible theme for the challenge, but I think people enjoyed eggs.   mjb.
