How to Roast Peppers

Have you ever had freshly roasted peppers? Many people shy away from them because they don't like hot and spicy foods, they are definitely missing out! Roasting any food just brings out the flavor and if you are roasting mild peppers you create a whole new taste with little or no heat. They are a great way to add flavor to casseroles and sauces.

To roast peppers you need to wash them, leave the stems on. Place over a flame or in your oven on broil. I like to use my outdoor grill. Turn them every few minutes until they are blackened and blistered. Remove from heat and place directly into an airtight bag. Leave them to cool. Once they are cool the skins will slide off when rubbed between your fingers. They will easily slice open so you can remove the seeds and inner membranes (where the heat is). Roasted peppers will keep a week in the refrigerator and 2 months in the freezer.
