One of the best part of summer foe me is the veggies! I love lots of kinds and growing them all, but I didn't figure out this trick for peppers until a few months ago. It makes for the best stuffed peppers I've had because it keeps the entire pepper body whole (no little bitty knife holes from cutting out the pith) and there is no bitter pith left inside. It also works well for removing pith/seeds for when you're just chopping them up, too.


Start by washing your peppers thoroughly. This gets rid of any dirt as well any pesticides or things like that clinging to the outside.




Cut the tops off just below where the stem joins the fruit as shown below.




That will leave you with something that looks like this:




Now make your hand into a shape like this:





Stick your fingers into the lobes, grab the seed body in the center and give it a twist/pull to remove, taking out the rest of the pithy part separating the lobes afterward if needed.




Et voil! Now you can cut it up however needed without worry about the seeds and pith inside. Or you can leave it as is and stuff with yummy grain and/or meat mixtures for making stuffed peppers and the tops can be placed back on them as is to keep everything nice and moist inside while baking. Be sure to cut the extra meat off the stem part in order to use it as well if you're not using them as baking containers.




I was using mine for bean burgers, so they got all chopped up and added to the rest of the veggie mix:
