Wash peppers just before using; remove the stem, seeds, and interior membranes. Sauté, steam, or bake and add to salads, soups, or stir-fries. Store peppers in a plastic bag in the refrigerator for up to five days.

Quick & Easy Recipe

Broil peppers close to an open flame or heat source, rotating until they blacken evenly. Put charred peppers in a plastic bag for about ten minutes, pull off the blackened peels, and rinse under cold water. Pat dry, remove seeds and stems, slice, and use in salads, or purée for soups.
