I always end up growing a lot of peppers each year, partly because I like peppers, but mostly it is because it is the one plant I can grow.

There are lots of ways to preserve peppers, I have shown how to dry peppers using a Ristra, you can pressure can them, you can make a hot pepper mash for hot sauce, jelly them, pickle them, and freeze them.

Today I will show how easy it is to freeze peppers.

Peppers are pretty easy to freeze, simply wash and discard any soft or moldy peppers, cut off the stem end, and place in an airtight container.

I told you freezing peppers was easy.

However, if you use this method for freezing peppers, you will end up with a large block of frozen peppers.  I recommend slicing them, and freezing individually on trays, and then bagging them up.

I did it this way, as I plan on making a batch of hot sauce later in the year, so I plan on using the entire batch of peppers at the same time.

Alternatively, you could use smaller bags when freezing peppers, I like to cut them up with some onions and use them for fajita mix for those nights when nobody wants to cook and we don’t have a lot of time.
