Pimiento is nothing more than the Spanish word for peppers, but in English it has come to mean red peppers that are preprepared by cooking, skinning, and seeding. Pimientos are used extensively in Spanish cooking. If using canned pimientos, purchase only those imported from Spain—domestic pimientos are mushy and fall apart in cooking. It is, of course, preferable to make your own, especially since red peppers seem to be available now all year round.
