These Red Bell Peppers are roasted, diced, and then dried. The long slow roasting time allows the heat to draw out every bit of sweetness from these peppers. Best to use in dips, marinades, sauces, soups, salads, stews and stir fries. They also give a meatier texture than do fresh bell peppers. And as with their fresh counter parts the red bell pepper gives a more vibrant color to any dish. You can also substitute dried red bell peppers in any recipe that calls for fresh.
For dishes that dried bell peppers will be soaking in, such as beans, omelets, wraps and stir fries, you can just add them to the dish towards the end of the cooking process (typically about 15-20 minutes before it is finished cooking).
Sweet, crispy, slightly fruity flavor with smoky undertones.
Bell peppers rate a 0 on the Scoville heat scale (SHU).
