This recipe for sweet and sour peppers is really quick and easy and allows you to produce a tasty side dish at short notice that everyone will really enjoy. These peppers are suitable all year round because they are great served both hot and cold. Although the recipe is simple, you need to take care over one or two things: don’t have the heat too high nor too low during cooking, to avoid the risk of either steaming or conversely burning the peppers. And don’t cover the peppers otherwise they will become mushy and the skin will come off. Finally, keep a well-proportioned balance between the sugar and vinegar in order to obtain a pleasant sweet-sour taste, neither too sweet nor too strong.
