How to peel peppers

Peeling peppers this way gives them a smooth texture and concentrated flavour. They’re great added to salads or pasta sauces, or serve them as an antipasto.


Step 1

Cut the peppers in half and remove the stalk, seeds and white membrane.


Step 2

Place the peppers under a hot grill, skin side up, turning as the skin blackens.


Step 3

Seal in a plastic bag and leave to cool.


Step 4

Remove the peppers from the bag. The skin should now peel away easily.
