These are wonderful to use in so many recipes, use right away or refrigerate in a jar --- to store in the refrigerator place the cooled roasted peppers in the jar then cover with oil, add in a pinch of salt, cover tightly with a lid then shake to distribute the salt, refrigerate for up to 3 days, for a large jar use 1/8 teaspoon salt --- do not skip step #5 or you will have a harder time peeling the peppers --- if you are using for salads they are best if brought down to room temperature ---- you may of coarse increase the bell peppers to whatever amount desired :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rub the outside of the pepper halves with olive oil.
  2. Arrange cut-side down in one layer onto a baking sheet or a shallow pan.
  3. Preheat the broiler and set the oven rack 4-5 inches from the heat.
  4. Broil the peppers until well charred (the peppers will not char evenly at the ends, this will take about 20 minutes or a little more).
  5. Transfer to a plate or bowl and immediately cover tightly with heat-proof heavy plastic wrap (I like using Saran Wrap for this).
  6. Allow to stand for about 20-25 minutes.
  7. When the peppers are cool enough to handle peel off the the skin.
  8. Chop to desired size then use immediately or transfer to a glass jar.

This is better than the store-bough roasted red peppers. I'll always do that and with any color. It's so easy. After they were cooked (20 minutes also), I put foil on it and forget them all afternoon. When I was ready to peel them, they were cold and so easy to remove the peel. Thanks Kit.
