Roasted Red Peppers from Florina

These are long, fleshy, thin-skinned peppers from Florina and its northern Greek environs that are surprisingly mild when fresh, but change dramatically when grilled. Grilled or roasted, the famed red peppers of Florina, in Northern -Greece, impart a wonderful, sweet fragrance, one of the telltale signs of the rustic cooking of western Macedonia.

Their robust flavor, ruby red color and glossy sheen make them one of the most renowned local products. Greek food manufacturers now produce excellent quality grilled Florina peppers, put up either in brine or olive oil.
