Tips & Tricks for Oven Roasted Peppers

Line Baking Sheet

I recommend lining your baking sheet with aluminum foil. This will make clean up super simple—just wad up the aluminum foil when you’re done, and throw it away! No need to scrub away all the stuck on bits.

Cleaning Peppers

Pull the stem of the pepper out first, then split the pepper in half. Remove the seeds and peel the skin away. Most of the skin will come off easily, but you may find some parts to be a bit trickier to remove.

Allow Time for Peppers to Cool

After you finish roasting the peppers, allow time for the peppers to cool. This will take around 30 minutes or so. If you jump the gun, you may burn yourself pretty badly.

Variations to Oven Roasted Peppers

Pepper Varieties

I find that red peppers work best for this recipe. They are sweet with a hint of savory flavor. But you can easily use other colors of peppers like yellow or orange as well.

Canning Peppers

If you are a person who enjoys canning, you’ll love this recipe. These peppers can be easily canned by following the instructions for your stovetop canning system. Make sure the jars seal tight, and then store them in a pantry or cool dry place.

Oven Roasted Peppers FAQs

What if my peppers don’t have char marks?

If pepper skins don’t have black char marks, I recommend bumping up the heat a bit more. Turn the oven to 450°F and allow the peppers to really soften up and char. This will greatly enhance the flavor of the peppers!

How should I store roasted peppers?

Place your raosted peppers in an airtight container and store for around 4–5 days. Use the roasted peppers as you would like in your favorite recipes, or eat them as a snack!

Do you leave the white membrane on the peppers?

You will want to remove the white membrane as well as the seeds. The membrane can give your peppers a bitter flavor.
