Did Peter Piper perfectly portion his peppers?
The summer is full of great ways of to use peppers like salads and kabobs. The faster you can chop veggies for any recipe the faster you can enjoy the food. Let’s be honest peppers are not cheap these days, using every piece of the pepper is key to getting your money’s worth. Here are simple and fast instructions on how to seed a pepper, then make sticks, chop, or dice them.
Step 1: Cut off the top and bottom of the pepper.
Step 2: Cut open the pepper and carve out the whitish membrane.
Cut the pepper in half and stack both pieces.
Step 3: Cut the halves of pepper into sticks of the desired size.
For diced pepper and this recipe, you want about 1/4 of an inch.
Chopped pepper is more like 1/2 an inch.
Step 4: Hold all the sticks together and cut perpendicular to the sticks to the desired size.
The skinnier you make the strips the smaller your end pepper will be.
Step 5: Remove any membrane from the top and bottom of the pepper,
cut the top and bottom into strips as best as you can,
then dice like you did for the main part of the pepper.
Now that you have that pepper chopped, do you need a recipe or two to use them in? And we of course wouldn’t leave you hanging.
