Peppers come in all sizes and colors. Some come with heat and others are sweet. You can easily get them from your grocery store fresh, frozen, dried, or canned.
Peppers are found in green, orange, yellow, and red. Red peppers pack the most nutrition, because they’ve been on the vine the longest.
Peppers are known to be low in calories and are loaded with good nutrition. All varieties are excellent sources of vitamins A and C, potassium, folic acid, and fiber. Plus, the spicy ones liven up bland food, making it more satisfying.
Peppers are very versatile. You can add raw ones to everything from dips and salads to pasta dishes. Some recipes require roasting them or stir-frying for some good color.
When working with hot peppers, remember that they can burn your skin and eyes. Wear rubber gloves while you’re handling them, keep your hands away from your face, and wash your hands as soon as you’re done. Keep a glass of whole or low-fat milk nearby, too.
Capsaicin is a colorless, odorless oil-like compound found in peppers. Capsaicin is primarily found in the membrane that holds the seeds.
Capsaicin won’t dissolve in water. You need some fat to neutralize it.
