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


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

Most of the seeds should come out with the stem.


Cut the pepper in half and remove the white ribs.

You can also get the last of the seeds.


Cut the pepper halves into lengthwise strips.

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


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

Your pepper is ready to go in your dish!

You can find bell peppers in a variety of colors, including green, red, yellow, orange, and purple. They each have a slightly different taste, so try them all!
