Bottled red roasted bell peppers

How do you guys feel about these?

I bought some and was shocked at how good the flavor is on them.

I've started using them in all kinds of stuff.

I think they are great, I usually roast my own, but when red peppers are $2 apiece, or out of season, i see nothing wrong with them

Very tasty. I love making them myself as well. I find the process a lot of fun.

Love them... only issue I have is when I don't use a whole bottle, the left overs don't keep well.
Anyone with a trick to extend the life of an opened bottle?

I consider myself to be pretty good with both grilling and smoking, but I just cant get that flavor off my rigs. It just POPS when you eat one from a jar and I cant make mine do that.

What do you guys do when you do them yourself?

Yeah Hopz...get a Foodsaver and vacuum all the air out of them. It will buy you a little time.

I just blacken them on the stovetop then place them under a bowl for about 15 minutes to steam. Then remove the skins and seeds. That is it.

My jarred peppers generally last for quite a while.

I use them in things where the taste of the preserving liquid will enhance the dish or at least not interfere.

Otherwise I roast my own, I tend to like them better.

I dont know if you have ever tasted the water they come packed in, but once I did that, (almost no salt and packed with flavor) I started using that TOO and it does bring more flavor.

I have tried both grilling and smoking red peppers but I cannot even get close to the flavor they have in the bottle, not even close. I just dont know what the heck is causing that.
