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. :)
