About

These organic red peppers are sweet, crunchy and very versatile. They’ll add crunch to salads, colour to stir-fries and smoky sweetness to a plate of roasted veg.

Local isn’t always best! Peppers’ homegrown season falls in late summer, though they’re a customer favourite year-round. When our own pepper season is over, we truck over naturally sun-ripened ones from organic growers in Spain. This uses just a fraction of the carbon compared with growing them in the UK using heat.

UK Seasonality

The UK season spans the warmer summer months – July to September.

How to prepare

Eat raw in salads or with dips. Use in soups, stews or omelettes. Lots of recipes call for them to be roasted, giving a lusciously smoky, concentrated flavour: cook either in the oven at 200°C/Gas 6 or over the gas hob until the skin is black and blistered. Put in a bowl, cover with clingfilm and leave for 10 mins – this makes the skin easier to peel off.

Storage

Keep them in the fridge. They can last up to 2 weeks.
