Roasting Green Peppers

This summer we tried roasting green peppers from our garden over a fire in the backyard. They were delicious!

The last of our tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants.

When the first frost threatened, I picked every last pepper in the garden and brought in a half bushel of them.

A couple weeks ago we fired up the woodstove to warm the house and I decided to roast most of the pepper harvest. I put my cast iron griddle on, greased it with some olive oil, and tossed on the green peppers. It took some time to get through all of the peppers, but it was well worth it. The small ones were roasted whole and the large peppers were cut in half and seeded first.

Not sure if I should call this frying or roasting...but it was delicious either way!

I saved a few peppers for fresh use, we ate our fill of the roasted peppers, and then the rest went into the freezer to use later…when roast peppers are a delicacy!

Did you grow sweet peppers this year? How do you preserve the extras? What is your favorite way to use green peppers? I love to hear your ideas!
