This version keeps in the frig for a week or so versus being canned. The inspiration came from a wonderful Trader Joe's product, frozen grilled peppers. I've been looking for more ways to use them -- they're cheap, convenient, nutritious, oh, and taste great too!
June 1 Taste Report: I've used Pied Pipers in several ways, all good. The favorite so far is as a tomato stand-in on sandwiches, especially since real tomatoes are still several weeks away. Try these:
