How to Roast Peppers

Roasting peppers teases out their sweetness and gives them a smoky edge (And they make Rachael's Birds in a Nest with Peppers & Sausage oh so good.) Jarred roasted peppers are a good shortcut, but you'll get a fresher flavor and firmer texture by making your own. It couldn't be easier: Follow our to-do tutorial below, heat up the broiler and get cooking!

1. Place the peppers on a rimmed baking sheet or broiler pan and broil, turning often with tongs, until blistered all over, about 8 minutes.

2. While warm, stick the peppers in a glass or metal bowl and cover tightly with plastic wrap. Let stand until cool enough to handle.

3. Remove the peppers from the bowl and peel off the skin. Cut out the stem and ribs, toss the seeds and you're done!
