If you buy any more red and yellow peppers you could make an easy chilli relish.

Recipe:

1 large red pepper
1 large yellow pepper
1 large onion
roughly 20 cayenne or jalapeno peppers
1 tsp of paprika
1 level tsp of sea salt
1 tbsp of sugar
1/2 cup of white grape vinegar



Chop both peppers and onion into small dice. Finely chop your chilli peppers. Add them to a pot and just cover with boiling water. Simmer till tender. Add salt, paprika and sugar. Simmer for 5 more minutes. Add vinegar and bring to a boil. Spoon into jars, close lids and turn bottles upside down. Allow to cool and refridgerate till needed.

This is lovely as a condiment for all meat and cold cuts and anything with cheese!

Am I too late?


Pepper steak



Pasta with veggie sauce



Or pepper and eggs on dish or a sammie - dice peppers and onion, saute and add eggs.

Yes, but that's OK

The stir-fry really lets the colors shine through, too. I like a nice colorful stir-fry

Do you have enough recipes, Pac? I have a few more if you're in need ... You might want to put colorful bell peppers on your weekly grocery list now, so you can catch up.

I was going to say, I've got more recipes than bell peppers!
One of these days I'll have to try to start a small garden. They are only over ripe green peppers, right? At least the red ones?

not necessarily over ripe. some types are bred to turn red, yellow, or orange fast, while others stay green almost until they rot.

You can keep the seeds from the peppers you buy to plant. I always grow them this way and they grow well.

I find that pepper plants work well mixed in with my perennials, so you don't need a veggie garden. The variety of sweet peppers I plant turn red. I also grow purple, orange, and yellow sweet peppers. If I leave the stems on the peppers (when picked green), they will turn red and not rot. I do find that the other colors (besides green) are sweeter and I like them better.

I don't see the chocolate colored bell peppers often but I would like to try them. Has anyone tried them and are they sweet?

They are like the orange and yellow ones if I remember correctly. Thanks to genetically modified technology, everything tastes the same
