I started out the day with high hopes of getting all of my red peppers that I purchased (Peppers..peppers and more peppers ) taken care of. Whether frozen, roasted or dehydrated. I managed to get the roasted ones done today. We ended up with a clogged drain which unfortunately involved the drain my kitchen goes to. So it was fun cooking with not using my sink today.
Here is my first ever adventure in roasting red peppers and canning them. My house smells like roasted peppers…which smells delicious.
I decided to roast my peppers on our grill as I have an electric stove and figured it would be much easier to get the char I wanted. Here they are all lined up purdy.
Just a different angle:
As they began to char I thought I’d stick on the few jalapenos that I had. Maybe giving a couple of the jars a zing to them.
I guessed they were done. I had never cooked anything that wasn’t done until I burnt it. LOL
Into the bucket they went and got covered waiting for them for the steam to help loosen the skins.
Here I am taking off the skins and removing the seeds, membranes and cutting them up into the size pieces I wanted.
Boiling my lids and rings: (I love the steam in the photo)
I sterilized my jars and now I’m going to fill them.
Into my pressure canner and waiting 35 minutes for them to process. (Cool reflections of my kitchen…lol)
I ended up from all those red peppers that I had on the grill into 6 pints of roasted peppers. In two of the pints I also added the jalapenos.
I think they turned out pretty good. Now hopefully tomorrow I can get the rest of the peppers I have taken care of.
Thanks for reading.
