Roasted Red Peppers

The fresh roasted red pepper has become the signature product of the Pumpkin Patch Farm Stand. It all started back in 1997 when Pat and I attended our first North American Farmers’ Direct Marketing Association conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

During the trip I kept hearing about chili roasters but didn’t know what they were talking about until the end of the trip when I finally saw one in action. Down in this part of the country, the roaster is used mainly to roast hot chili peppers, not red sweet bell peppers. I figured that I could be the first on the block to roast red peppers and as far as I know I am still the only one on Long Island or the Northeast that has this type of chili roaster.

The learning curve for the ideal roasted red pepper was long and frustrating. After many disasters and ruined peppers, I finally discovered the secret of producing the perfect delectable sweet roasted red pepper. I now roast over 1 ton (2000lbs) a season to supply to our satisfied customers.
