How to roast Piperies Florinis (Greek Red Roasted Peppers)

Roasted Piperies Florinis

The method for roasting peppers is the same for any kind of peppers, but I have chosen Piperies Florinis, which are red sweet peppers, named after the prefecture of Florina, where they are cultivated.

Before giving my recipe, I wish to explain the easiest method for roasting peppers.

There are many ways you can roast them but I think the simplest is in the oven.

Alternatively you can roast them on charcoal, which is the best, as they get the smoky taste, or on an open gas flame, which I do not have.
Preserved Piperies Florinis

How to roast Piperies Florinis (Greek Red Roasted Peppers)


  • 1 kilo red sweet peppers (Florina type)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

For preserving them:

  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons wine vinegar
  • salt
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped (optional)
  • A pinch of oregano or thyme  (optional)


  1. Wash the peppers and after draining excess water brush them with the olive oil and place them in the oven at high temperature 220 degrees Celsius  until their skin blisters. Watch carefully so they do not burn and turn them over, once.
  2. Place the roasted peppers in a plastic bag and seal for 5 – 10 minutes and allow them to sweat.
  3. Open the bag and remove stems, peel, remove and discard the skin, seeds and any veins.
  4. When they cool put them in jars or in a Tupperware, airtight vessel. Add salt, wine vinegar, garlic, herbs and  olive oil until they are covered.
  5. They can be preserved for a long time, so long as they are covered with olive oil

The first thing I made was a side dish, very easy to prepare and very tasty.

    This looks great, Ivy. We can only find the jarred piperies florinis here, but I can tell your topping would really dress them up too.

    How did I miss so many of your posts sis. I guess I am just catching up:D These peppers sound so flavourful. I would never have thought to prepare them and preserve them in this way for future use:D

    I love roasted peppers Ivy, they are such a nice and fresh treat in the summer hot days! Love to mix them with roasted eggplants, tomatoes and onion – these four roasted ingredients are called Escalibada here… sooooooo good!

    How delicious. I’ve just tried roasting red bell peppers for the first time and really enjoyed them. But this sounds so much more interesting.
