Have you wondered what to do with the excess green peppers from your garden?
At the end of the season we pull all the plants from the garden and pull the peppers. We like to slice and freeze our excess peppers to use in recipes all year long.
Wash peppers. Seed peppers then slice. Flash freeze peppers then put in zip lock bag store in the freezer and cook in recipes that typically take fresh peppers.
To Flash freeze, simply put a single layer of peppers on a cooking sheet and place in freezer. Once they are frozen put in an airtight container.
