WELCOME HOME THE LAWSON FAMILY
THIS WEEK I WENT ON A BINGE PRESERVING ROASTED PEPPERS
THIS IS A METHOD FOR FREEZING ROASTED RED PEPPERS IN THEIR OWN JUICE
I turned on my gas grill: place peppers on grill turning occasionally until skins blister. Remove and place in a paper bas and turn down top of bag to keep peppers hot. Once cool remove peppers, take a paper towel and run over skins to remove peels. Pull out the cores and attached seeds. Cut open each pepper and scrape out any remaining seed into a catch bowl. Place the cleaned peppers into a second bowl.
Set a wire strainer over the bowl contained the cleaned peppers and tip the skins, cores seeds and any juice into the strainer. Press the stuff in the strainer gently with the back of a spool so that all the juices drain over the cleaned peppers. Discard remaining stuff in the strainer.
Divide the cleaned pepper among freezer containers. Pour the juice over the peppers. Cover the containers with tight fitting lids, mark them with the date and freeze.
After thawing your cleaned pepper can be eaten cold, chopped into salad or place on toasted brushetta. .
ROASTED RED PEPPERS
Roast peppers 30 minutes at 375 degrees turning occasionally until skins are blisters. Cool thoroughly in a paper bag. Skin, core and seed. Cut flesh into suitable strips. Place in one-pint glass canning jars.
Prepare a brined: To one cup water, add one level Tbsp. coarse salt and � tsp. Citric acid.
Add enough brine to fill jars. Process in boiling water bath about 35 minutes. Seal jars and allow to come to room temperature.
I place mine in the refrigerator, they tend to get used up fairly quickly in my house.
