How to roast Piperies Florinis (Greek Red Roasted Peppers)

Preserved Piperies Florinis

The method for roasting peppers is the same for any kind of peppers, but I have chosen Piperies Florinis, which are red sweet peppers, named after the prefecture of Florina, where they are cultivated.

Before giving my recipe, I wish to explain the easiest method for roasting peppers.

There are many ways you can roast them but I think the simplest is in the oven. Alternatively you can roast them on charcoal, which is the best, as they get the smoky taste, or on an open gas flame, which I do not have.

Piperies Florinis (Roasted Peppers from Florina) and how to roast them

Ingredients:

  • 1 kilo red sweet peppers (Florina type)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For preserving them:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • salt
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped (optional)

Directions:

  1. Wash the peppers and after draining excess water brush them with the olive oil and place them in the oven at high temperature 220 degrees celcius  until their skin blisters. Watch carefully so they do not burn and turn them over, once.
  2. Place the roasted peppers in a plastic bag and seal for 5 – 10 minutes and allow them to sweat.
  3. Open the bag and remove stems, peel, remove and discard the skin, seeds and any veins.
  4. When they cool put them in jars or in a Tupperware, airtight vessel. Add salt, wine vinegar and  olive oil until they are covered.  If you like you may add some finely chopped garlic slices.

They can be preserved in the refrigerator upto 1 week or even more.

The first thing I made was a side dish, very easy to prepare and very tasty.
