Bring Out the Rich Sweetness of Bell Peppers

Here's a trick for bringing out the rich sweetness in bell peppers.

Blacken the bell peppers under the broiler or on the grill. After broiling or grilling, peel off the bell pepper skins with a paring knife and use the pepper in sandwiches, pasta sauces, or as an accompaniment to chicken or fish.

Whether the bell peppers are red, green or yellow, bell peppers are a good source of vitamin C -- and a great source of fat-free culinary excitement. Sliced fresh bell peppers add crunch and color to salads of all kinds.

Did You Know?

If you can't have fresh bell peppers year 'round, you can purchase them dried. We highly recommend Mother Earth Products Dried Mixed Bell Peppers - these are non GMO, gluten free and remain a great source of essential vitamins and minerals in their dried state. These can be stored up to 25 years! Snack on them as they are, or use in meals or when camping.
