Blanching & Freezing Sweet Peppers

I didn’t grow any peppers this year. I miss having my own garden of late summer goodies. So when I saw big bags of red and orange sweet peppers marked way down at the store the other day, I saw an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.

I brought the peppers home and washed, seeded and sliced them up. Blanching them is easy and heat kills the enzymes that cause veggies to lose quality and nutrition in the freezer. So I steamed small batches of pepper strips over boiling water for 8 minutes and put them in the refrigerator to chill. Then they were ready to go into containers or bags and then into the freezer.

Super easy!
