    Cut the capsicums into strips, or your desired shape, and place into sterilised jar.

  3. Step 3

    Fill with extra virgin olive oil, and add your herbs and chilli.

  4. Step 4

    Place on lid and keep in the fridge for up to a month. These preserved capsicums are perfect for pizzas, toasties and salads!
