How To Roast Your Own Red Peppers in the Oven

Oven Roasted Red Peppers - Recipe

If you love to cook or make antipasto platters, chances are you’ve had to purchase roasted red bell peppers in oil. While certainly delicious and flavorful, finding high quality or organic roasted red peppers can be difficult and get expensive. If you have access to a farmers market or grocery store with fresh, organic produce, you can make your own with this easy recipe.

Arrange 8 medium fresh red bell peppers on a broiler pan. Broil 8-10 minutes, turning peppers so skins roast evenly. Transfer peppers to a large bowl to cool for about 10 minutes. Remove the loosened skins and cut into thick slices. Discard the stalks and seeds.

Divide slices into 3 half-pint jars. In small bowl, mix 2 tablespoons coriander seed and 1 tablespoon peppercorns. Divide among the 3 jars. Add 2 garlic cloves and 1 bay leaf to each jar. Pour organic olive oil into each jar to cover the peppers (total should be about 1-2 cups). Be sure to leave at least ¼” space between the top of the oil and the rim of the jar. Pop any air bubbles that appear in the olive oil before closing tightly. Let sit for a few days in the refrigerator. Pepper should last for up to 1 month.
