I got some banana peppers from my in-laws and wondered if they were ok to feed my bubbies. Has anyone fed them to their piggies.

This shouldn't be in the kitchen. I am sure the mods will move it.

If they are fresh banana peppers, not pickled then the pigs can have some. *Growls at the word "bubbies". Sorry, I just am not fond of that word to describe piggies.

It just reminds me of another forum that I don't care for at all.

I'm sorry, I started calling them bubbie just because I had never heard anybody else call them that until recently.

You shouldn't be sorry for me having a problem with the word "bubbie".

They are smaller and thinner than bell peppers. They are usually sweet so feed in moderation.

Banana peppers also have a bit of heat. They aren't as bad as jalepenos, but still have a little bit of capsicum (the stuff in chilis that makes them hot). Generally speaking with veggies in the pepper family, the smaller they are the hotter they are. Bell peppers usually being the sweetest because they are the largest, and so on down to Thai chilis and habaneros being hotter than most sane people can handle without being cooked into something else.
