Roasted Peppers

My Recipe Collection
Red, Yellow, Orange Bell Peppers, one color or you can mix them up.


Place on Grill on high heat. Do not treat grill with no stick spray or olive oil.

Rotate peppers as they singe on each side, you may need to turn them upside down as well in order to soften the bottoms and tops of the peppers.

Ready to be bagged:

When done place in paper bag and let cool.

The peppers will be very wet, place the paper bag in a bowl to carry into the house.

Once cooled remove from the bag.

Under running water, rinse and peel away the dark areas, discard the stem and seeds, rinse well and place in Colander to drain.

Once drained portion and place in pint or quart size freezer bags, freeze.
