Imperfect Escamillo & Sweet Carmen Peppers


1 lb

Their name comes from the French opera in which the traveler Carmen falls in love with the bull-fighter Escamillo. These almost identical peppers have lobed shoulders and a sweet flavor. The Carmen is a shiny red; and the Escamillo, a bright yellow. They make a flashy duo, but are refined enough to stand completely on their own. Stuff with rice and vegetables; blend into a hummus; make a romesco sauce.

Store in a plastic or paper bag in the fridge for up to 5 days.
