18 Jul Peppers (Sweet) – Cooking + Storage Tips
Store peppers in a plastic bag or airtight container in the crisper drawer of your refrigerator. Green peppers will usually stay fresh longer than colored peppers, and stored properly all should stay fresh for 1-2 weeks.
Enjoy them fresh, grilled, or roasted
Peppers can easily be frozen for later use in recipes where they will be cooked. First wash and slice peppers to desired size, then lay flat in a single layer on a baking sheet. Freeze for about two hours or until just frozen, then transfer to a freezer-safe airtight container for freezing.
Peppers can also be roasted first and then frozen. To do so, place whole peppers below the broiler for 3-5 minutes on each side. When peppers are charred, immediately transfer to a paper or plastic bag or a bowl with a lid. Allow the peppers to steam for about 10-15 minutes, then remove the peels and allow to cool. Chop if desired, then transfer to a freezer-safe airtight container for freezing.
