March 26, 2021: Online Review

Pepper Project is grateful for the kind response over the years. Here is the latest 5-star review:


Just a quick note to say we're crazy about the pepper - it has a complex flavor that I haven't found in other black peppers but it isn't so spicy that it behaves like an overspiced hot chili pepper. My husband raises every super hot chili pepper that he can find, so I have a good idea about hot peppers! The apron is really wonderful! It's lightweight, fits well and the pocket in the front is handy. I especially like the extra long ties in the back. I didn't know I needed them until I had them.

I'm so pleased with these purchases.
