“This is one way to make those pretty jars of red peppers. This recipe calls for fresh thyme, but other fresh herbs, like basil or oregano work well also. Great for home-made holiday gift giving.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roast the peppers until the skins are charred, using a grill, gas burner, broiler, or just in the oven.
  2. Once charred, place in a bowl and cover tightly using plastic wrap, a plate, or other cover.
  3. Allow to cool, then peel and remove seeds; cut or pull peppers apart in 3 or 4 inch wide pieces.
  4. Use paper towels to dry peppers and season with salt.
  5. Using clean, sterilized pint sized jar, pour a little olive oil into the bottom; place the bay leaf and garlic into the jar.
  6. Place a layer of peppers and drizzle with oil; repeat until you fill the jar.
  7. Stick the thyme down into the jar and top off with oil; screw on the cover and leave at room temperature for one day.
  8. Store in the refrigerator; as long as you do not contaminate the jar and keep it refrigerated, the peppers should last several months.
