    Sharon123's Note:

    Here is a recipe that can be used for many different uses. It's a great way to keep fresh bell peppers ready to use at a moment's notice. You can use different colors or just one color depending on what you have. Serve as part of an antipasto platter, add to salads or sandwiches, and the oil can also be used to flavor dressings or drizzle on bread. Enjoy! Adapted from Vegan Chef.

      What a delightful and great way to use up an abundance of bell peppers! I used minced garlic and dried herbs so that a salad would include them when drizzling it on. I enjoyed an antipasto salad using this oil, some peppers from the jar, and a drizzle of red wine vinegar for lunch today. Great recipe, thanks so much for sharing. This makes a great gift recipe also as I gave a jar to my neighbor.

      Anyone considering any home canning recipe for foods packed in oil should be aware of the botulism risk. For information on avoiding that risk and still enjoying oil-packed foods made with home equipment, please see this helpful document. http://extension.oregonstate.edu/fch/sites/default/files/documents/sp_50-701_herbs_and_vegetables_in_oil_2011.pdf

      I used all green peppers as that's what the garden yielded this year. A flavorful way to preserve peppers. Can't wait to try it on pizza and in sandwiches. Made for ZWT8 by a fellow Herbaceous Honey.
