Can jalapeno peppers be frozen?
By Mike from St.Louis, MO
All peppers can be frozen and the only thing needed is to make sure that, whether seeded and cut or whole, that they be patted dry really well. Since I use jalapeños a lot in my cooking I freeze whole after a wash, pat dry and placement in zip-lock bags and just take out on a need to basis. As long as they are dried well they will not unreasonably stick together because it's the moisture that causes the sticking.
How do you freeze red/yellow/green peppers?
When freezing hot peppers just wash, remove stems, and place them whole in freezer bags. It makes a lot less work then chopping them all up. I then take out what I need for a dish and they do not lose their hotness.
