How to Roast Red Peppers

Roasting Peppers

When it comes to pepper preparation, don’t confuse roasting with blistering or charring. Roasting peppers is a slower process that’s done at moderate heat in an oven or low grill. It not only separates the skin from the flesh but also concentrates the natural sugars in the pepper. Place peppers on a baking sheet and roast at 400° for 25–30 minutes or until the flesh is quite soft, turning them twice. Place them in a bowl or bag and seal. After 10 minutes, peel off the skins with your hands. Do not rinse the peppers.
