Bell peppers are a favorite for home cooks. They are available at the grocery store all year round, but unless they are bought in the height of their growing season, they can be tasteless during the winter. One way to get the best flavored green peppers is to buy them when they are in season and store them yourself. Frozen green peppers actually taste just as delicious as they do when fresh. Frozen green peppers cook down faster and are just the right touch to bring that freshness of summer to your dishes.
Cut your green peppers into a couple of different shapes before freezing. First, cut them into the size that you most often use. For most of us, this means diced into bite sized pieces. Here is a video showing how to dice green peppers properly so they cook evenly.
After you have bags of diced peppers in the freezer, cut plenty of them in half and remove the seeds. Blanch them in boiling water for a minute and then into ice water to cool quickly. Freeze them and have peppers ready to stuff at a moment's notice.
Green peppers are of course mild, this technique also works for any of the hot peppers you like. Be sure to label your bags so you know just how hot the peppers inside are.
Now you have all the peppers you need, here are some delicious ways to use them:
