Roasted Peppers

by | Feb 3, 2021 | Condiments, Cooking Basics | 0 comments

When peppers are plentiful and inexpensive at the farmer’s market, it’s a good idea to buy some in bulk to freeze for cold-weather cooking. In the winter, peppers are very expensive and their flavor is nothing compared to seasonally purchased organic peppers.

Roasting intensifies the flavor as well. From stews, pastas, sauces, and more, you’ll find there is no end to the recipes that can benefit from the addition of roasted red bell peppers.

It’s well worth the trifling amount of time and effort that goes into preserving this culinary favorite.
