How to store peppers
Keep them in the fridge. They can last up to 2 weeks.
How to cook peppers
Add raw to salads or eat with dips (try some Riverford hummus). Roast them, use in pasta dishes, soups, chillies and omelettes. Recipes often call for roasted peppers, which gives them a smoky, concentrated flavour. Either cook them in the oven at 200℃ or over the flame of a gas hob, turning them until the skin is blackened and blistered. Place in a bowl, cover with clingfilm and leave for 15 mins – this makes it easier to peel the skins off.
The UK season spans the warmer summer months – July to September.
