Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Mount Olive Roasted Red Peppers
Freshly roasted red peppers are always wonderful, but these roasted red peppers in a jar are great when you don’t have time to roast your own!
I love roasted red peppers as a pantry ingredient. Of course you can roast your own red peppers, and the freshly roasted peppers are fantastic when you have the time. But when you don’t have that much time, using roasted red peppers in a jar is quick and the jarred peppers are amazingly flavorful. My normal grocery store carries two brands of jarred red peppers, but these Mount Olive Roasted Red Peppers are so much cheaper than the other brand and so consistently good that I decided it’s time for me to add them to my list of Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks, where I rave about products that I love enough that I’d happily buy them over and over.
Just in case you are looking at that jar and wondering how I’d use this type of roasted red pepper, here are some recipes from the blog that use them. If people have other ideas for using these tasty morsels, please chime in with a comment!

Everything I feature for Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks is a product I’ve used myself and would happily buy over and over again. If I ever feature a product I first received as a sample, I will always disclose that information. (In this case, Mount Olive has never sent me any red peppers, and they have no idea I’m writing about their product.)
