How to skin a pepper

Many recipes call for skinned peppers, but it can be tricky to remove the skin if you don't know this handy method...

  1. Slice off the top of the pepper and remove the seeds and the white ribs from inside
  2. Slice the peppers into quarters length-wise
  3. Place the peppers under a grill with the skin side up
  4. Grill the peppers until the skin is blistered and blackened
  5. Remove the peppers from the grill using tongs and place them into a re-sealable plastic bag (which will prevent them from drying out)
  6. Leave for around ten minutes, until the skin has loosened
  7. Peel the skin off and discard
