Red peppers can be roasted on the backyard barbecue, indoor grill or under the oven broiler.
To grill, place whole red peppers directly on barbecue or indoor grill over high heat. Turn peppers every few minutes, roasting for a total of about 5 to 10 minutes or until peppers are blackened and blistered.
For oven broiling, place on a broiling pan and broil, turning often, for about 20 minutes or until peppers have blackened all over.
Place peppers in a saucepan with a tight-fitting lid for 5 to 10 minutes, then peel, seed and use as desired.
