Mini Bell Peppers:
These small, thumb size peppers measure about three inches tall and have a crisp texture. Mini Sweet peppers are thinner-skinned than larger peppers and their texture withstands grilling and cooking.
Seasons/Availability
Mini Sweet bell peppers are available year-round.
Current Facts
Mini Sweet peppers are grown specifically for their size, flavor and appearance. They are available in a trio of red, yellow and orange colors.
Applications
Mini Sweet peppers are great eaten fresh, out-of-hand or added to any number of dishes. Stuff peppers with cheese or ground meats; add raw peppers to salads or pasta dishes for added texture. Roasted Mini Sweet peppers make a nice addition to soups or stews. If refrigerated, the peppers will keep for up to two weeks, left at room temperature they will lose their crunchy texture within hours. Freeze roasted or grilled peppers for future use.

I'm enjoying some pretty good peppers here in Greece. Last night sweet green ones stuffed with feta, tomato and garlic and topped with parmesan.

Oh wow, looks like the sun's on the way after a morning of rain. See you soon.

Ooooo, how interesting, bell peppers with chorizo and cream cheese. Sounds so good. My mom used to make chorizo and eggs for breakfast. She's part Spanish, and loved to cook it for my dad.
