How do I freeze capsicums without them going soggy after defrosting? I just bought capsicums in bulk. I bought carrots in oil and they were crisp. Will this work for my capsicums if I put them in oil. What is the most frugal way to keep them?

How do you freeze the peppers? I had good results if I deseeded and then cut them up (sliced or diced, depending on what I needed), froze them solid in one layer on a cookie sheet, then placed them in a baggie.
They won't keep too well in oil since they have too much water in them. It would be best to grill them first, remove the skin and seeds and then store them in oil, if you would like to try that.
Hope that helps!
