Roasted Peppers – Grilling Instructions

PeppersI used my “free” peppers in a stir-fry, but my sister-in-law had an abundance of peppers, and decided to roast them on the grill.

She was kind enough to share her pictures and preparation method, and of course, I will share it with you.

It is a very simple and quick process, and the roasted peppers may be served as an appetizer, used in sandwiches, as a dipping sauce made out of olive oil, roasted peppers and minced fresh garlic.  These peppers also freeze very well.
