Preserved Peppers

I've been making these preserved Peppers for a good while now, simply due to the fact it is a great use for left over peppers.

I first saw these on the Jamie O show as a jarred product, and found that they are exceptionally easy to make, if a bit long in the processes.

If you leave them to preserve long enough, they become really sweet and creamy, and work wonderfully in Humus or with some mozzarella.

Use a weight to hold them flat to the pan, for at least 5mins.

4. Turnover twice, following the instructions on step 3.

5. Put the peppers into a bowl and cover them in cling film. Leave to steam for 15mins.

6. Put the peppers in some water, and rub the skins off with your fingers.

Leave in a cupboard to preserve for at least two weeks before using them.
