Saved by the bell

It’s bell pepper season in Florida, and these tasty vegetables can be used in a variety of recipes. They also taste good eaten raw with or without dip. When you’re buying your peppers look for smooth skin that has a gloss and is tight. Be sure there are no watery spots or wrinkly places. Remember, green peppers are less sweet than the yellow or red ones. You can store them in the refrigerator for a week or chop them up, put them in the freezer and just get out what you need to put in soup, spaghetti sauce, or other great recipes. Tip for seeding: Hold the pepper tightly and slam the stem end on the counter. This loosens the seed core and makes it easy to pull out.
