Here in Minnesota the short growing season often results in harvesting peppers while still green. This year the first frost was delayed quite a bit, allowing many of our bell peppers to fully ripen into reds and yellows.
One of our favorite things to do with red bell peppers is roasting them over a fire. The fire roasted peppers can be enjoyed immediately, frozen for later use, or canned.
The process of fire roasting peppers makes for a great evening fall activity. Sitting around a campfire flipping peppers on the hot coals is not only fun but relaxing.
Our process is to start a large fire and let it burn down until there is a nice hot bed of coals. Once we have a bed of hot coals the peppers are thrown in. After a couple minutes on each side the peppers are cooked and can be removed form the fire. When the peppers are cooled the outer skin can be slipped off and they are ready to enjoy!
