Bell peppers are available in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes. Bell Peppers are a great source of Vitamin A & C and are also known as the sweet pepper as they have a recessive gene that eliminates the Capsaisin which is what gives peppers their “Heat”.
Another thing is that the number of Bumps on the bottom of a Bell Pepper dictate how you should use them.
Bell peppers with three bumps on the bottom tend to be sweeter while Peppers with 4 bumps on the bottom are better and firmer for cooking!
Did you know this? I didn’t, so the next time I go to the farmers market, I’ll be sure to get my bell peppers with both 3 bumps and 4!
We use our Bell Peppers for pizzas, omelets, salads, and stuffed peppers.
