Organic Bell Peppers
Enjoy A Crunchy Sweet Bell Pepper!
Most bell peppers start out green (although some start out yellow) and then change into yellow, red or orange as they ripen. Green peppers are slightly less sweet and a bit more bitter than the more brightly colored peppers. Fresh, roasted, sautéed or marinated, organic bell peppers are simple to prepare, yet bring huge flavor and nutrition to your meal.
Frequently Asked Questions
How should I store my organic bell peppers?
Sweet peppers can be stored in the refrigerator, and should be used within 3 to 4 days after purchase. Remember that the red, yellow and orange bell peppers are generally riper than the green ones and will spoil faster. Try to consume those within a couple days after purchasing.
What’s the easiest way to cut a bell pepper?
Placing the bell pepper on its side, carefully slice the stem end and remove. Do the same with the bottom end, and discard both cut pieces. Placing the pepper on its end, vertically slice the pepper so that it can be opened wide. Gently flatten the pepper, skin side down, and use the knife to cut alongside the skin and remove the ribs and seeds. The pepper is now ready for slicing into strips or dicing.
