Italian Sweet Peppers by Early Morning Farm

Don’t let the long thin shape and bright red color fool you, these peppers are not at all spicy! Italian sweet peppers have a lovely, sweet taste for salads and roasting, especially when partially or fully red-ripe.


Store unwashed in a sealed plastic bag.  Use within a few days for best flavor.


Wash thoroughly.  Remove tops, then slice in half.  Use a sharp knife to remove the membranes and seeds.  Slice and dice for use in recipes, or grill or roast halves for stuffing with meat or grains.  Add raw to salads or vegetable trays.  Kids love snacking on sweet peppers!  Saute with onions and garlic at to use as the base for savory dishes.  Add to pizza and pasta dishes.  Try roasting and removing skins for concentrated pepper flavor.
