Roasted Red Peppers have been on my radar for some time now.  I have been craving them.  The smooth texture, and the deep flavors from roasting. Mmmmm!  Combine that with a few select pasta dishes that I have lined up, and I have some fantastic meals planned.

How to Make Roasted Red Peppers

In case you have not roasted red peppers before, I’ll show you the perfect way to cook them and pack them into jars.  I have mine packed in the juice with olive oil and garlic.  Just marinating in the refrigerator until I use them in my next roasted red pepper masterpiece.

This will be Em’s first time having them, so I am excited about that too.

With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Course Main
Cuisine American
Method Oven
Servings 1 pint


  • 8 red bell peppers
  • 9 garlic cloves, smashed
  • olive oil to pack peppers in


  • Preheat oven to broil. Wash peppers and place on a baking sheet. Place baking sheet on top rack and let broil until charred. Turn the peppers, 1/4 turn. Repeat until all sides are charred. The first side with take the longest, and be careful not to leave your oven unattended.
  • Once peppers are done. Place in a large bowl and cover tightly with aluminum foil.
  • Allow to cool about 1 hour. The steam from the hot peppers is separating the skin from the pepper, making it easier to peel them.
  • Meanwhile assemble the tools you will need for peeling the peppers. A cutting board, a bowl, a sieve that can sit on top of the bowl, and a paring knife.
  • Once cool, cut the pepper on one side from top to bottom. Carefully hold pepper over sieve and allow pepper juice to drain into bowl. Remove the seeds, core and stem carefully. If you do this little by little around the core, you can remove all the seeds at once. Toss the seeds and core into the sieve, so your bowl can collect the delicious juices. You should now be able to separate the skin from the flesh with little to no effort. If the skin sticks, place the pepper skin side up on your cutting board and scrape with the back of your knife. Place charred skin into sieve. Slice pepper and place into bowl, under sieve so the pepper may absorb the juice. Repeat until all 8 peppers are in the bowl.
  • Discard the remains in the sieve. Place 2 cloves of garlic in each pint size jar (or you can use another 2 cup container). Evenly distribute the peppers between your jars. Once filled, pour in remaining pepper juice from your bowl. Fill with olive oil to within 1/2 inch of the rim. Add one garlic clove on top.
  • Store in your refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
