Loaded With Vitamin C {Did You Know Tuesdays}

   Peppers have more vitamin C than citrus fruits! Green bell peppers have roughly twice as much, and red peppers have three times as much. Hot peppers? They contain 357% more vitamin C than citrus by weight. Isn't that crazy? Research also shows that peppers are anticoagulins (fancy way of saying that it retards blood from clotting), helping prevent heart attacks or strokes. "Google it" and you'll see.

   Isn't that nifty to know? You might want to plan on growing some peppers if you've got a garden coming this year!
