dirty peppers

(that's what the girl called them)

How to roast a pepper

1. take pepper. (hello pepper).
move oven rack to highest position.
Turn on broiler.
Place pepper into heated oven.
Turn pepper every few minutes, as skin blackens,
or pepper gets "dirty"
Remove from oven.
Place dirty pepper into paper bag,
and let sit for 15-20min.
Remove from bag.
Skin, seeds, stem and ribs will remove with ease!
chop, slice and/or dice
add them to your favorite salad, soup, dip, or sandwich.

(there will be a quiz tomorrow:)

I don't know what it is about moving an oven rack that makes me decide not to try a recipe. The sound of grating metal? Anyway, can I come over (ya know, from Ohio) and have one of your peppers instead?
