Another time saver in the kitchen is freezing peppers.
As you already know, I am always looking for ways to save money and time in the kitchen. While I love to cook, I like to make it as easy as possible. Life is busy… and I want to provide my family a delicious home cooked meal even when I’m swamped with sports and other activities. I have already showed you how to freeze onions and why I love doing it.
I get asked often Can you freeze peppers?
The answer is simple. YES! Today I thought I would show you how to freeze peppers so you can save money and time too!

How to Freeze Peppers:
Every time I get a nice deal on bell peppers, I purchase at least 6 or so and start chopping. I chop them all up like you would for dinner and place in a quart freezer bag. (You can get a pretty good deal on Amazon) Then place the bag in the freezer. They should stay fresh in the freezer for about 6 months.
Now when we are having spaghetti, chili, or another yummy dinner that requires green peppers, I can simply take them from the bag frozen. They might stick together. No biggy…. just give them a quick bang on the counter and they break apart easily.
This will make any easy dish or crockpot meal, even easier! You may have to bang the bag on the counter once, but the peppers will separate, so you can take out only what you need for that one meal.
You can do this with any kind of peppers. You can also do this for peppers you have grown in your garden. If you are new to gardening check out this post on How to start a garden. You can also slice them if you want to have on hand for fajitas or a stir fry dinner . The possibilities are endless!
