How to Freeze Green (Sweet) Bell Peppers

Have a lot of green or sweet bell peppers getting ready in your garden that you just cannot keep up with?  Here is a good, quick, easy freeze idea to take care of them and enjoy at a later date.  Freezer peppers go well with winter comfort foods such as chilis and soups, or thawed and used as pizza toppings.  Lets get to it!


  • Bell Peppers
  • Freezer containers or bags.  We usually do pint sizes, it seems to be about the perfect amount for a batch of this or that.


  1. Rinse
  2. Remove seeds and core
  3. Cut/chop into pieces
  4. Put into your freezer containers or bags
  5. Date to ensure proper yearly rotation, place in freezer and enjoy later!  Done… pictures below!

I cut up 7 sweet peppers from our garden, and froze 3 of those freezer containers and 1 pint freezer bag, it took 30 minutes from picking to finish.  I will probably freeze a total of 10.  4 down, 6 to go!
