Bell Peppers (Red)
We grow several varieties of bell peppers on the farm, including: Olympus, Red Knight, Snapper, and Yankee Bell. If you have a gas stove, try roasting them directly on the burner. Be careful to turn them with tongs as the skin blackens. Cover and allow to steam until cooled, then peel.
