  • 8 red peppers

  • Preheat oven to 350°. Rinse and dry the peppers and put them on a baking sheet in the oven and roast for 1 hour turning every 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and cover with paper or kitchen towels. When the peppers are cool enough to handle, remove skins and stems. Cut open and remove seeds. Strain and save the juice for later if there is any.
