Immediately before cooking peppers rinse under cold water, are cut and remove the seeds.


Pepper put into a small amount of cold water, if we want this to its taste and aroma passed into broth (eg. Cooking soup). If you cook the peppers as a separate dish, toss it into boiling water - thanks to retain most of their juices. Peppers cook for 7-10 minutes. Time start to count from the time of re-boil water. Immediately after setting with salt (approx. 2 teaspoons to 1 liter of water). It is also slightly sweetened (approx. 1 teaspoon per 1 liter of water). Boil under cover - this shortens the processing time and reduces the loss of vitamins. To check whether the pepper is cooked, you can stick a fork or a knife. If it falls softly, it is ready.


After cooking, drain off the peppers. After boiling water containing nutrients can be used for sauces, soups, etc.


Serve sprinkled with dill and green glade with melted butter.

Bon appétit!
