Meet Emmanuel Tsimiklis.
E & J Tsimiklis Pty Ltd have been supplying capsicums to ALDI for over 10 years, and there’s another 50 years, and three generations of experience behind that. Their red and green capsicums are grown in Virginia, just outside Adelaide, and sent straight to the ALDI warehouses so you always get the freshest in store.
Pick capsicums with a firm, brightly-coloured, shiny skin and dark green stem.
Capsicums are sweet, they’re good for slicing and dicing, for roasting, pickling and just about everything.
Four points even sweeter.
Capsicums with three points on the bottom are male, and the ones with four points are female and are usually a little bit sweeter.
Out for winter, in for summer.
Capsicums can last. In winter, you can just store them out in the fruit bowl. In summer, put them in the fridge and they could last a few weeks.
Richest in Vitamin C.
Think Vitamin Capsicum – because capsicums are one of the richest dietary sources of Vitamin C. They’re also extremely high in Vitamin A, B6 and K.
