Sweet Peppers Packed in Brine
These mild red peppers are grown in Northern Greece, where they are hand-harvested at peak ripeness, immediately fire-roasted and hand-packed in a brine of wine vinegar, salt and sugar. Sweet and bright, these peppers can be enjoyed straight out of the jar or transformed into dips, sauces and soups.
Ingredients: red peppers, water, salt, wine vinegar, sugar. Refrigerate after opening.
How to use
Make a quick romesco sauce by whizzing Greek Roasted Red Peppers in a food processor with Marcona Almonds from Mitica, garlic and a splash of Dry Sherry Vinegar from Alvear. For a spin on traditional gazpacho, blend these peppers with fresh tomatoes until smooth. Or, enjoy them paired with briny olives on top of a pizza, as a sweet flourish to grilled cheese, or diced and tossed with pasta salad.
