Peppers of all sorts are enjoyable with many dishes. However, slicing them and having a seed explosion on your cutting board is not enjoyable by any means. Or you just don’t like pepper seeds. I get it, we all have our preferences. That’s why I decided to share with you all a little trick I picked up a few years back. You can apply this trick to any type of pepper, whether it is bell, banana, Serrano, chili or jalapeño peppers. Okay grab a bell pepper and let’s slice it up.
What to Gather:
- One Bell Pepper of any color
- Sharp knife
- Cutting board
- Position the cutting board on a flat surface.
- Stand your bell pepper upright with the stem facing up.
- If the pepper is wobbly, slice a bit of the bottom off to give you a flat bottom. This also helps to see where the seeds are.
- Position your knife at the edge, move inwards a bit staying away from the absolute center.
- Slice down in a straight motion.
- Turn the pepper and repeat for each side.
- Compost or discard the core and all those annoying seeds.
- Don’t worry if you get some seeds, they’re easy to dust off.
- Enjoy your new cooking trick
That’s all for now, and remember that Dad Bods Cook!
