bell peppers

  • Bell peppers are the only type of capsicum pepper without any capsaicin.
  • All other capsicum peppers contain capsaicin and are known as chilli peppers.
  • Green bell peppers are not ripe. They can be left on a sunny window ledge for a few days to ripen up.
  • Amazingly, I have found that I can sometimes purchase bags of six peppers containing three red ones for about the same cost as two loose red peppers.
