Veg of the month: Peppers

Peppers have become part of our everyday cooking, popular in salads, stir fries and pasta dishes. Whatever colour they are, they're all the same variety, but have been allowed to ripen to different degrees; green are the youngest and sharpest, followed by yellow, orange and then red, which are the sweetest.

Red peppers are said to have lots of health benefits, from supporting your night vision to preventing anaemia as they contain vitamin B6 and folate.
