Coring and Seeding a Bell Pepper

Getting peppers ready for cooking involves coring and seeding them. You can both core and seed a bell pepper in the same procedure.

1Cut around the stem, then twist and pull it out.

Most of the seeds should come out with the stem.


2Cut the pepper in half and remove the white ribs.

You can also get the last of the seeds.


3Cut the pepper halves into lengthwise strips.

You can add these strips to a salad or stir-fry, for example.


4If you want to cut the pepper into cubes, hold the strips together and cut crosswise.

Your pepper is ready to go in your dish!
