WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Product Review: Mt. Olive Roasted Red Peppers

This is probably the only Mt. Olive product I have ever purchased, at least that I recall. And, when you have a moment, please check out their website. It's freakin' hilarious. Make sure the volume is up, too.

OK -- on to the review. So, the oil-to-pepper ratio is a bit meek here. It says 12 ounces on the bottle. Sure does. You can see it right there in the photo. This is not 12 ounces of peppers. It's about half and half peppers and oil. These bottles run about $4. And, seriously, you are getting about 2.5 roasted red peppers.  But, goodness, you are getting some quality! Seriously. These folks have been around for nearly 90 years so you'd have to assume that they have their production on point. They do. So, yes, this is an endorsement: the price turns out to be reasonable. 

The roasted red peppers have a milder taste. There is no flavor added and you do not get any smoke. Think oven roasted with an olive oil bath. Very light on the oil, but the flavor is quite hefty. You get this lovely, gentle sweetness and softness, but not in a way that the peppers fall apart when you handle them. They are still a bit robust.

I have used these peppers in a whole host of things, but my favorite is stuffed in a pork loin along with mozzarella and spinach. I've even just eaten them on their own. Always good.
