Step 2: Preparation
Cutting a Bell Pepper
First, wash your peppers, remove any tags etc.
Cut about an inch from the top in one even and perpendicular slice with a non serrated knife.
Reach in and remove the seeds and any white pithy matter. These don't taste well and take up space for stuffing.
Be sure to keep each top with its respective bottom -- otherwise you won't be able to close the pepper quite right.
