...Core & slice peppers

Step by step

1 Slice off the top and stem. Measure a 4-finger length towards the base of the pepper and cut off the tapering end. (Keep these pieces as they can often be cut up and used too.)

2 To remove the core and seeds, cut through the pepper and carefully slice through the inner pale ribs, removing the core and seeds at the same time.

3 Ensure the pepper flesh is the thickness you require. If not, you may need to trim the inside of the pepper a little. Cut the pepper into batons or fine julienne (see slicing chillies, above).
