Red Bell Peppers
Red bell pepper has a mildly sweet yet earthy taste. These peppers are fully mature versions of the more bitter green bell peppers. They're also an excellent source of vitamins A and C. Each half cup of raw red pepper provides you with 47 percent of your daily recommended intake of vitamin A and 159 percent of your vitamin C.
Purchasing, Storing and Serving
Look for bell peppers that are firm and vibrantly colored. They should be stiff with no soft spots, dents, or bruises. Bell peppers should be kept extremely dry to prevent rotting. They should be placed in the refrigerator vegetable drawer in a mesh produce bag. If storing sliced, diced, or chopped peppers, be sure to place in an airtight container and use within three days.
Bell peppers can be enjoyed either raw or cooked, just be sure to wash with cool water and remove seeds and stem before eating.
