    In my CSA basket today are a sackful of big red Marconni peppers, freshly fire-roasted. They're sitting on the kitchen counter right now, and I'm in here wondering what in the world I'm gonna do with them!

    Any suggestions?

    I roasted a few red peppers this year myself. I read that if you freeze them, they will maintain their flavor and consistency. That's what I did with mine. I also Googled roasted red peppers and found you can make oil with them.

    Quote:I probably will stick them in the freezer, just so I have time to figure out what to do with them!

    Puree them with some roasted garlic to make a spread to go on burgers. Yummy!

    MM, I wish I knew how to pack them properly in oil, too.​

    I put them on sandwiches/wraps, chop them up into tomato/spaghetti sauce, and put them out on platters at parties. I eat them with humus. I always include them with my grilled veggies.

    Quote:Corn bread--yum! I normally make a sweet, moist cornbread. Would the peppers go well in that type of cornbread? Do you adjust the ingredients at all? Would a more rustic, savory cornbread recipe be better?

    Will it rain tomorrow? [​IMG]
