How to cook Peppers

Peppers, especially the red variety, are sweet and good to eat both raw and cooked. Try roasting them with chillies and tomatoes, stuffing them, or adding them to curries, lasagne, pasta dishes and stir-fries. They also add a great bit of crunch to salads.

ARE PEPPERS A VEGETABLE?

Technically, no. Peppers are eaten like vegetables, but because they have seeds they are actually classified as fruit. They are a member of the Nightshade family, along with chillies.

DID YOU KNOW?

Yellow and orange peppers are grown from special varieties of seed. The green and red ones come from the same plant – they are just picked at different stages of maturity. That explains why red peppers are sweeter, as they have had longer to ripen in the sun.

Peppers are closely related to chillies, which are smaller but much more fiery!

Peppers are not related to the plant that produces black peppercorns. Peppercorns come from the Indian subcontinent.


What are the health benefits?

Peppers are a source of vitamin C. Vitamin C helps to keep our immune system working properly so we can fight illness and flu.
