Red Bell Pepper
Red bell peppers are a type of sweet pepper that are known for their vibrant color and mild, slightly sweet flavor. They are an excellent source of vitamins A and C, as well as potassium and fiber. Red bell peppers can be eaten raw or cooked, and are commonly used in salads, roasted dishes, soups, stews, and sauces. They are easy to grow in a home garden, and are typically in season from late summer to early fall. When selecting red bell peppers, look for specimens that are firm, heavy for their size, and have a bright, glossy skin with no blemishes or soft spots. Store them in the refrigerator in a plastic bag for up to a week. To prepare red bell peppers, rinse them under cold water and cut off the stem and core. Slice or chop them as desired, and enjoy their sweet, juicy flavor in a variety of dishes.
