Question of the Day: Can red bell peppers be frozen?
Quick Answer: Yes, you can freeze red bell peppers.
To freeze red bell peppers:
- Wash your peppers and allow them to dry.
- Using a paring knife, cut away any soft spots and core your bell peppers.
- Slice your red bell peppers into rings and place them on a baking sheet or in a shallow pan, ensuring they are not touching.
- Place in your freezer until hard frozen.
- Move frozen red bell peppers to airtight containers, label them, and store in the coldest area of your freezer.
Frozen red bell peppers will last for up to eight months without losing their flavor or nutritional value. However, once thawed, they won’t be as crisp as fresh peppers.
