A colorful, tasty garnish with a touch of sweetness.

Servings: 4

Prep Time: 30 min. [PT30M]

Cook Time: 2 hours [PT2H]


1 red pepper
1 green pepper
1 yellow pepper
3.5 oz sugar
1 pinch of salt
3.5 fl oz oil
1 sprig of thyme


Wash the peppers and blanch or char over a flame so that they can be easily peeled. Remove the seeds and cut into strips. Place in a pan with the sugar, salt, thyme, and oil. Cover the pan and place over a low heat. Cook for about two hours. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.

This garnish goes especially well with fish or fatty meats such as pork or duck.
