    Felice Cool roasted pepper technique! I don't have a gas stove so I'll have to try it in the oven on broil ;) Can't wait until my garden tomatoes ripen!

    Jens H. Jensen Broiler/grill should also work but probably take some time. Even better: Make a fire in the garden and roast them directly in the flames! :-)
