Making Home Canned Roasted Red Peppers.

Filed in Gather Food Essential by on September 20, 2009 0 Comments

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. :)
