How to Remove the Skin of Bell Peppers.

Removing the skin of bell peppers is quite fun.  Unlike peeling tomatoes ( where the tomatoes are plunged into boiling hot water for a few minutes to remove the skin), the peppers  have to be burnt till the skin is charred. I prefer this method than  using a vegetable peeler as the  pepper tastes much nicer as well .

First  turn on the biggest   burner.You  can either place it on top of the burner or place a wire rack over it and place the bell pepper on it.  The pepper will spit and a few  sparks might be there so make sure to keep the area cleared , dont want  a fire in the house now do we?

Turn it over to charr the whole pepper or pepper  half  and then  remove to a bowl or plastic
container,  place the lid or cover with cling film and leave to cool. Or you can put in a plastic bag and tie the ends loosely  and let it cool.

Then once cooled , rub the skin under running tap water to remove it. Use as required
