Roasted Sweet Peppers and Herbs Preserved in Oil Recipe

Ingredients:

• 1 pound ripe sweet peppers
• 4 to 6 cloves garlic, diced
• Handful each of fresh basil, parsley and oregano leaves
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• About 1 1/2 cups extra virgin olive oil

Instructions:

1. Using your oven’s broiler, a gas or charcoal grill, or the flame of a gas burner, carefully char peppers until the outer skins are black all the way around. Set aside to cool, then slip off and discard skins. Slice into strips and discard seeds.

2. Toss peppers in garlic, herbs and salt. Add to pint jar and cover completely with oil. Refrigerate and use for about a month.
