Freezing Peppers

We planted a massive amount of pepper plants this year so we have quite the bumper crop.  I didn’t want the peppers to go to waste as the season winds down.  I did a bit of research this past month on the internet and found that you can just freeze them.  You can either freeze straight out of the garden or blanch them.  I choose the easy way.  :)

I picked a bunch, washed them, and patted them dry.  I chopped them up into the size I wanted and put on a cookie sheet.

I just love all the colours!  I pop them in the freezer for at least 24 hours.

I then vacuum seal in the portion sizes I need.  This vacuum sealer has paid for itself many times over and it is relatively easy to use.  Needless to say our freezer is getting full!

  1. beautiful pictures! I have just made vegan stuffed cabbage rolls using some of your peppers. Good texture to the peppers, great taste. By the way, I tried something different with the cabbage rolls: a touch of molasses and ginger. Your Dad thinks they are the best yet. Always experimenting :)

  2. When it comes to chilli peppers I put them either in a plastic bag or tupperware box and straight into the freezer without any processing. I then use them straight from frozen. I rekon they’re good for around 6-12 months.
