    Hi all!

    That's probably a really stupid question, but I really don't like green peppers, and I was hoping someone might know how to get them to change colour! :) xx

    I have had green ones turn orangey if I kept them long enough :eek: mind you they usually go wrinkly before that! I wonder if putting one in a paper bag with a banana would do it?
    I love it when the big bags of peppers are red and yellow! Lidl often have red peppers really cheap.

    I do usually, but I have two green ones sat in the fridge from packs of 3 that my mum bought. Just thought it would be a shame to waste them!

    I think they taste more sour then the red/orange ones. I normally put them in spag bol the taste is more manageable

    Haha! Think I might chop them and freeze them to put in a risotto or something. The banana isn't working! :) xx

    I find them OK in a curry or chilli, but not much else! Too bitter for my liking.
