    I see photos of beautiful whole sweet peppers (Bell, banana, etc.) grilling. What about the seeds? If you grill peppers, do you seed them first or just grill and hope for the best?
    Please tell me how you do it, which is probably the best way! I like to follow real cooks' advice rather than a photo op!

    It does not matter on sweet peppers. Grill away! As you clumb the scoville beanstalk however, say cowhorn peppers like I use with garlic in fried black eyed peas, you need to start caring before you feed others.

    sweet peppers cut the top off, de seed them and fill them and put them in the oven and bake. Method 2 whole on the bbq no de seeding. Method 3 cut deseed and marinate in lemon juice, olive oil, chopped garlic and salt and pepper to taste and basil. Marinate for at least 20 minutes. This is my favourite way of barbecuing courgettes.

    I marinade and cut my sweet peppers into thirds or quarters and grill. Yum!

    I just use balsamic vinegar, olive oil, garlic, basil and salt and pepper.
    If I'm in a real hurry I just use itallian salad dressing!

    Carolyn, we don't like to eat the seeds either. I'm going to try Netty's method of halve, de-seed, marinate and then grill.
