Green Bell Peppers

Nutritional Table

Selection - Choose peppers that have unwrinkled, firm, and shiny skin.

Storage - When taking peppers home, it is best to store them in paper, not plastic. They will keep for about five weeks.

Preparation - Wash and remove stems, seeds and membranes. Steam slices covered for 4-6 minutes until crisp-tender.
To microwave: Place in 1-quart casserole with just enough water to cling to them. Cover and microwave for 3-4 minutes until crisp-tender, stirring once. Let stand for 2 minutes.

Nutritional Information - Green peppers are a great source of vitamin C, some folate, vitamin B6, and fiber. One serving size,1/2 cup (chopped raw), has 14 calories.

Benefits - Great source of vitamin C , which assists in iron and calcium absorption.
