Originally from America, bell peppers have been grown throughout Europe for centuries now. Here are a few tips for how to clean them.




Ingredients for 4 people


1 bell pepper
salt


Preparation

1
Using a knife, remove the stalk of the pepper, then cut in half.

2
Remove the seeds and pith inside.

3
Rinse to remove any remaining seeds, then use it in the preparation of your choice.

4
If your recipe calls for a cooked, peeled pepper, brush it with oil and cook in oven at high temperature for about 30 minutes, making sure to rotate it over from time to time.

5
Once the skin of the pepper is well cooked, turn off the oven and place the hot pepper in a plastic grocery bag.

6
Tie the ends so that the steam helps the skin to come off more easily.

7
Once the pepper has cooled, cut it in half, remove the stalk and the seeds and filaments inside and peel away the skin.

8
Slice it and use it as you please.
