Sweet-and-Sour Roasted Peppers

"The flavor of this juicy pepper combo improves the second day and can be made up to four days ahead," says Jane. "Remove from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving and adjust seasonings, if necessary." Jane suggests buying the peppers at a farmers' market to make sure their skins are unwaxed.
