I love having a propane torch, when my yet-to-be husband, shot a deer, took the hide off, he was pleasantly surprised that 'his girl' carried this most important equipment. It is used to burn off the hair from the flesh. And to caramelize sugar.
I don't have the patience to do that. I cut off the stem end, cut them in half, scoop out the membranes and seeds and roast them under the broiler till the skins blister and loosen, then put them in a bowl with a kitchen towel over it to let them steam. Then remove the skins and freeze.
Beth is buying them by the *case*. There must be hundreds in a case.
