Roasting Peppers 

You can grill peppers over charcoal, over an open flame, or under the broiler. 

For the broiler method, preheat the broiler. 

Place the peppers on a baking sheet or broiler pan. 

Broil, turning them with tongs and watching carefully, until the skin blisters and blackens, 10-12 minutes. 

Transfer the peppers to a plastic bag or a bowl, and seal. 

Let stand until cool to the touch. 

Peel and seed.
