Let me add that when you find red bell peppers on sale - they can be so expensive! - buy a bunch. Once they are roasted (which I do on my BBQ grill), you can freeze them for later use. After they are roasted, just put them on a cookie sheet and freeze (don't peel them). Once frozen, remove to a ziplock bag and use as needed. They can be pulled out one at a time and they peel easily once defrosted. I also do this with poblano peppers and always have bags of both in my freezer.

- I put them under a hot grill and turn them infrequently until black all over.
- I then put them in a pot with a well fitting lid to cool. (The books often say put them in a plastic bag, but I try to minimise my use of plastics for environmental reasons)
- Once you can handle them you can peel off the black skin easily. Don't run them under the tap as much of the flavour can go.
