Red and Yellow Bell peppers galore !

Postby Zosherooney » April 26th, 2012, 1:57 pm

I have about 4/5 lbs of the above and fancy bottling what I can, I am short of DF space but have jam jars. Don't want to add tommys but have onions and garlic that need using up too. Relish of some sort (help please Sloe !!!) or just bottled so I can use in other dishes. Would prefer to use slow cooker if possible.

Answers on a postcard please .........

Chunks of pepper, onion and potatoes simmered in a little spicy tomato sauce is really nice mixed through cooked basmati rice.

Roasted pepper hummus.

Stuffed with couscous or rice and baked.

Halves filled with tomato, garlic, basil and anchovy, drizzled with olive oil & roasted.

I dice and freeze peppers and use them as an emergency stand by in a mire poix if I happen to have no carrots knocking around.

I have a pretty looking photo and recipe at home somewhere for two colour pepper soup. Two basic pepper soups were made, one from red and the other from yellow and then to serve each soup was ladled into its own jug and poured at the same time, one from one side of the bowl and the other from the other side.

I have made Elizabeth David's version of this, and it is good, but it does need tomatoes (I don't think it needs the currants, mind you)

I've never tried bottling peppers as such, though Lecso, the hungarian pepper. tomato and onion stewy dish used as an essential ingredient in cooking from that country, does bottle very well. You can see bottled peppers, so clearly the process works. While I make a red pepper soup, I always make it fresh and haven't ever bottled it, I am afraid.

Where ever do your peppers come from at this time of the year?

I've actually made peperonata and, by bottling then "cooking" in a water bath for 25 minutes, achieved conservation for up to 6 months.You do need to make sure everything is squeaky clean and that the peperonata is completely covered with oil.
Yesterday, I saw some cannelli beans in the cupboard and decided to make a roasted red pepper and cannelli bean soup -which I did. It was gloriously good.
I cooked the beans first and roasted the red peppers with a couple of onions, salt, pepper and mixed fresh herbs (parsley, oregano, basil, sage, thyme and rosemary were available). Splashed and mixed with olive oil, Jamie style ( ie " whack all those beauties together in a bakin' tray, slosh a bit of Extra Virgin over the top, and just mix 'em up wiv yer ánds. Stick it in the oven for about firty five minutes. Bob's yer uncle!") then blended smooth. I added the bean water (from dried beans, not from a tin) and a little extra liquid. Brought to the boil then added the cooked beans and warmed the soup through. Adjusted seasoning (In fact, I added a tsp of Spanish Pimentón or Paprika, just because it was there) and served with crusty bread.
You could also make Sweet pepper chutney; it´s ok with all colours but far superior if you just use the red ones. Mine's as follows:
1.2 kgs Red Peppers, chopped
400 gms sugar
275 gms onion, chopped
200 ml white wine (or cider) vinegar
60 gms mild red chiles, deveined if you wish, but definitely deseeded for aesthetic reasons!
5 cloves garlic
1 tsp salt
1 tsp paprika or Spanish Pimentón Dulce
METHOD: ( VERY complicated. :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :terrified: )
Whack everything into a large pan and cook for about 25- 35 minutes, until the chutney is thickened. If there's too much liquid, just drain some off and give it to the cat.
Bottle, seal, cook in water bath for 25 mins. Store.:D
Then there's Louisiana pepper jelly. That is just magic.
Or you could go for a portion of m´hammara (sic?) - a delicious Middle Eastern mezze made with red peppers and hazelnuts.

Double Pepper Soup

Into one saucepan place 4 red peppers, deseeded & chopped, 1 stick celery sliced, 1 onion chopped, 1 clove garlic crushed, 1 tbsp chopped lemon thyme, 1 ltr veg stock, 1 bay leaf. In another saucepan place 4 yellow peppers treated the same way as the red and the same amount of other ingredients. Bring to a boil and simmer until veggies are soft. Remove bay leaves and puree each soup. Season with S & P. Reheat soups. Make a chive cream by mixing 2 tbsp fromage frais, 1 tbsp finely chopped chives, S & P. Pour soup from two jugs from each side of bowl and garnish with chive cream.

Clive I wish you would post here more often. Your talk of peperonata, red pepper & bean soup, and m'hammara has really made my mouth water! :drool: :tu:

The peppers came from our market and although some needed a bit of chopping around I still ended up with loads. This morning I wizzed them and poured into square containers, will try and find a space in time in the DF and when frozen, pop them out of the plakky and into a bag (saves a bit more space). I can do onions and garlic separately and add when defrosted.

Sorry to have seen this rather late.
I had quite a glut of peppers last summer. I chopped them into large slices - drizzled with oil, salt and pepper - put them in the oven at 200C for about 30 mins, peeled them and put them in sterilized kilner jars - topped up with olive oil. We have been using them all winter, and they've been delicious!
Maybe next time!
