Question of the Day: What to do with red bell peppers?
Quick Answer: There is no end to the possible uses for red bell peppers.
You can, of course, use the fresh as pizza and sandwich toppers, and you can add them to sauces, soups, salads, and pasta dishes. These are common knowledge.
What isn’t so widely seen is people making jellies and jams out of red bell peppers. The natural sweetness of mature capsicum makes wonderful preserves, and red bell pepper relish is a beautiful way to add color and liven up any dinner setting.
Red capsicum also pairs well with earthy foods like beans and adds a subtle sweetness that helps balance the tangy or bitter edges of cooked greens. You can even use them in green smoothies.
Just let your imagination run wild.
