How to Cut a Bell Pepper

It seems like it should be incredibly simple to prepare certain foods like cutting an onion, chopping garlic, peeling a kiwi, mango or fresh ginger, but if you rarely use these foods or venture into the kitchen these foods can be incredibly perplexing and downright a pain.

One of the foods that I know has way more than one way to cut open is a bell pepper. It seems simple enough, but if you cut it in half or try slicing in certain angles you can end up with seeds everywhere, white pith still attached to the pepper that takes another step to cut off and even worse end up wasting valuable pepper flesh still attached to the stem.

    Hi Catherine!
    There are so many weelicious recipes I love that use pepper (Brazilian Turkey Casserole, Asian Lettuce Cups, Fajitas) I don't remember where I learned this technique but I turn the pepper upside down, cut the bottom off as a slice (so you have a flower shaped circular shape with four petals) and then I can see the pith really well and I can cut the pith out while I cut down the four sides of the pepper. If the stem is long, it has to be trimmed to be able to easily and safely place it upside down.
    Hope it's not too hot for the end of your pregnancy! Wishing you all the best for the coming months!
