Although they’re native to Central and South America and the Caribbean Islands, bell peppers are now grown around the world. They have a mild, sweet flavor and are an excellent source of vitamin C. These peppers also contain vitamin A and small amounts of calcium, iron, niacin, phosphorus, riboflavin and thiamine. In other words, they’re good for you.
The red is the same fruit as the green pepper; just vine ripened longer and allowed to sweeten even more. To re-hydrate, mix 3 parts water with 1 part peppers and let stand for 20 minutes or until soft. If you’re making soup, stew or sauces you won’t need to re-hydrate, the cooking process will take care of it. These are great for campers.
“I was in Boulder and I made a point of stopping in your store near Pearl St. I had a terrific time. I love being able to buy small quantities of different spice mixtures/spices to try and I certainly bought my fair share on this visit.”
