Prepare a Bell Pepper

Bell peppers are expensive. I remember my father always complaining at how expensive they were. Ok, it doesn’t help that I buy only organic peppers at $5.99/lb. My weekly shop usually has about 6-7 medium sized peppers in it, and it usually comes close to $20– ooooooouch! 

I’ve seen people waste so much flesh of what is a good bell pepper. So here, I am going to show you how you can get all of the flesh with very little fuss.




1. Lie the pepper on its side.

2. Slice across the pepper about 1.25 cm (½ inch) near the stalk.

3. Pop out the stalk and discard. Remove the seeds with your fingers or a spoon, discard.

4. Prepare the pepper in whatever fashion you choose.
