THIS MONTH IN THE delicious. KITCHEN...

As the delicious. food team cook and test recipes, there’s constant tinkering and fervent discussion: timesaving ideas; new tricks we’ve heard of; some technique we’ve dreamed up and want to try… Then there are the questions and input we get from colleagues as they come to see what’s cooking. On these pages, our aim (with help from our regular experts) is to reproduce that test kitchen atmosphere, sharing the most useful ideas and tips we’ve discovered. It’s cookery gold!

PEPPERS

MAKE THE BOUNTY LAST

With their traffic light colours, peppers are the most vibrant of vegetables. Snap up bargain bags now and stash some away for later

FREEZE Grilled peppers freeze well and are great additions to winter salads or vegetable stews. Before grilling, pull out the stalk and seeds and cut in half, pressing flat onto a baking sheet. Grill until blistered with black patches, scoop into a plastic bag and leave to cool, then peel away the skin. Pack into freezer bags, adding any juices that have accumulated. Freeze for up to a year.

PRESERVE Homemade harissa is easy to make and much cheaper than the spicy red paste you buy in tiny jars. By using a base of sweet peppers you can adjust the heat to your taste. To make it, grill and peel 4 red peppers (as above). Soak a dried red chilli in hot water until soft. Purée the chilli, peppers, a garlic clove, 1 tbsp ground cumin, 1 tsp sea salt and 4 tbsp olive oil. Add a few drops rosewater, then spoon into clean jars. Cover with a layer of olive oil. It will keep for up to a month in the fridge or 6 months in the freezer.
