Most often used in their light yellow stage, Hungarian sweet peppers look very much like banana peppers. However, when fully ripened, they are vivid red-orange to red in color. The heat and flavor of Hungarian peppers will vary depending on the variety and how ripe they are. Generally, the redder in color, the sweeter (and possibly hotter) in taste.
A tapering pepper measuring 5-6″ in length and about 1 1/2 ” in diameter, Hungarian peppers are low in calories, fat and sodium. They are an excellent source of dietary fiber, Vitamin A, potassium and Vitamin C. Store unwashed in a plastic bag in the hydrator drawer of the refrigerator.
When diced in small chunks, these peppers are a great addition to relish or salsa recipes, adding a sweetness that will temper the heat from other peppers. They can be used as a raw ingredient in various dishes, and are delicious stuffed with your favorite sausage or cheeses. Try using them in frying (as in stir fry) or grilling as well.
