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.
- Remove seeds and core
- Cut/chop into pieces
- Put into your freezer containers or bags
- 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!
