Cutting A Bell Pepper
Cutting a pepper can be done anyway but I’ve found this way reduces waste. It also allows for even strips if you want to use them with a dip or just to make a dinner pretty. I wrote up the steps but below are pictures of each step to help.
Cut off the top of the pepper with the goal of cutting just under where the stem connects on the inside. Picture 1-2
Cut off the bottom (enough so you can see through up to the top) Picture 3
Set the pepper on its top or bottom (top down is best if you have room to cut) Picture 4
Slice down into the pepper to disconnect the seeds from the pepper without cutting through the exterior of the pepper. Repeat with the other two attachments.
The seed should now fall out of the pepper when you lift the exterior piece (Pictures 4-5)
You’ll be able to remove the stem from the top or cut the pieces off. Now you can dice the top and bottom pieces.
The core is similar length so slicing will allow even pieces.
