Capsicum are also known as sweet peppers. They come in a variety of colours dependant on how ripe they are. Starting green, they change to yellow, lime green and red. The red are the sweetest as they are the most ripe.
To buy, look for taut, smooth-skinned capsicum with no wrinkles or soft damp patches. They are best bought unpackaged so you can thoroughly inspect them.
Capsicums are great grilled and served with antipasto as an entree. You can also try pureeing grilled capsicum in a food processor to make a sauce or stuffed and baked in the oven.
