Roasting peppers enhances the flavor and allows the tough, bitter skin to peel away from the pepper.
Select fresh peppers with smooth skin and no blemishes for easy peeling. Wash the peppers and let air-dry.
Heat your grill on high. Place your peppers in a single layer on the grill rack.
Roast the peppers by grilling until the skin is blistered and blackened. Turn the peppers every few minutes until the skin is charred all over.
Remove the peppers from heat and place in a covered bowl to steam.
Once the peppers are cool enough to handle, put on a pair of gloves and remove skins.
Cut off the stem and slice the pepper open. Use a knife to scrape out the seeds and membrane. Peppers are ready to use in your favorite recipes or preserve for later.
