Pepper Tricks!

Sometimes the best cooking tips come in how to prep your food! Dishes may be easy to cook, but time consuming to prepare. So here is a little pepper prepping tip for you. (Say that 10 times fast.) I have a friend, Matt that used to be a chef and he is always showing me these little gems. By using this technique most of the seeds will pop out of the pepper leaving you with more of the pepper to work with. Those pesky little seeds stick to everything don't they!?!

Place your thumb on the top of the pepper and apply gentle pressure to push in the stem. You will feel a pop and the stem will fall into the center.
Cut the pepper open. You will see the bulb with the seeds are attached to the stem.
Remove bulb with seeds attached and the rest of the pepper is ready for you to use.

  1. Great trick! I had no idea that could be done and it worked just as described. Love peppers even more now!
