Did you know a large red pepper contains three times more vitamin C than an orange? In fact peppers in general contain three times more Vitamin C than oranges and other citrus fruit. A red pepper contains twice the Vitamin C of a green one, and ten times the Vitamin A. How marvelous!
Now, there's nothing quite as nice as a roasted or grilled blackened pepper - not only does it make them easy to peel but it brings out their natural sweetness and they taste amazing.
If you've never tried this get roasting or grilling and have a go at making marinated peppers. Great with some lovely warm fresh crusty bread.
