Kitchen Tip: How to pick Peppers



Kitchen Tip: How to pick Peppers


Each week I’ve been sharing a Thrifty Tip. While this tip could save you some money buying the wrong peppers, it’s more of a Kitchen Tip. :)

Peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating.
Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are firmer and better for cooking.

Tonight I made stuffed green peppers. You can find the recipe here. I really don’t usually like peppers, onions, etc. so this was really going out on a limb for me. My mom came over earlier today and suggested that instead of stuffing the green peppers, I slice them and lay them on the bottom of the casserole before the meat mixture. Otherwise, I might get more pepper taste than I had thought I’d get.

So that’s what I did. I did slice the peppers and then boil them a bit before cooking. That way they were nice and tender and I only had to bake the casserole 30 minutes vs. the 60 in the recipe. It turned out great! I had originally planned on fixing a separate meal for the kids but this way, I didn’t have to. Everyone ate! The kids ate around their peppers but the taste was still in the dish and it was really good!

    Up until now, all I have read on this article is extremely boring, and seems to be written by writers that lack education. You’ve done a very good job conveying your passion with accurate information.
