In 5000 BC, pepper became domesticated as a crop in the Tehuacan Valley of Mexico. Years later, after Columbus traveled to Mexico, he brought back peppers to Europe. In the 1600s, pirates also found a love for peppers when traveling throughout the Americas and the Caribbean.

In 1896, stuffed peppers made their first appearance in a printed cookbook. Then, in 1912, the Scoville scale was created. Wilbur Scoville created this scale as a way to measure the intensity and heat of peppers. 

Sure, you’ve probably seen green, yellow, orange, and red peppers, but did you know peppers also come in black, brown, white, and purple? When you want to dry peppers out, you can hang them. Hanging peppers is also believed to bring health and good luck in some cultures. If you want to get the most nutrients possible out of peppers, eat them raw in a salad or by themselves as a snack.

If you’re wondering how to celebrate National Pepper Month, there are many ways you can do so. You can get creative and make your own hot sauce, you can take a pepper class, or you can prepare a recipe with peppers. You can also dine at Jalisco Mexican Grill.
