how must garden-fresh pimentos be prepared prior to eating?

When used fresh, the skin is typically removed.  The outside peel, seeds, and the tissue around the seeds should be removed first, so that you can enjoy the interior part of the pimento.  The old way to remove the skin of the pimento was to suspend the pods on sticks and pass them through a fire. The skins were charred by burning, and then removed with a rough cloth. Today, while many improvements have been made, the same principle of "roasting" is still used by some commercial companies.  It is your choice of how you choose to remove the skin before eating the pimento.
