How do I store bell peppers until I am ready to stuff and have enough to stuff?

Bell Peppers freeze beautifully just the way they are!! I usually cut them up in small pieces, put them in a ziplock bag and throw them in my freezer. When I want to make an omelet, I just sprinkle a few pieces in the pan, stir fry them, add the rest of my ingredients, and voila!, I have a tasty omelet. I don't know if they would work well to eat "fresh" after they've been frozen (I think they might be limp) but going from frozen to cooked works perfectly!

I clean them,then put them with the tops in a gallon freezer bag.Put a straw in the edge of the bag and suck out as much air as you can. This will help keep them from getting freezer burn. You can always use the tops in another recipe or put them on top of your stuffed peppers.

If it's only going to be about a week from the time you purchase them until stuffing and baking they will be just fine in the produce bag and in your crisper or you can stuff and bake them while they're still frozen. :-)
