Where I live, bell peppers can be rather expensive. I buy them only when they are on sale. I wash them, chop them, then spread them on a cookie sheet. I let a little fan blow on them for about half an hour. This reduces the surface moisture a bit, thereby reducing the formation of ice crystals when I freeze them. I still get enough ice crystals to cause the peppers to stick together.Free Flowing Frozen Peppers

I found that if after doing the above, I place a coffee filter in the freezer bag and squeeze all air out before sealing, the peppers will have very little ice crystals on them, and all the little pieces will remain separate and even pourable.

I freeze bell peppers. Just seed them and chop them. I put mine up in quart bags and just take out the amount I need when I'm cooking.

I wash and remove the seeds. Dry the peppers with paper towel. I chop my excess bell peppers into small pieces and place in freezer bag, being sure I lay them flat in the freezer until frozen. I can then remove what I need for meatloaf or anything else I can add them to while cooking.

Can I refreeze bell pepper?

Best Answer

If the bell pepper has been frozen and then thawed, it probably won't freeze well a second time. I have frozen soups that were made from some frozen ingredients but they are usually mushier than the original soup.

Yes and I store them for up to a year. They still taste great Because I don't use them very often I freeze the red, yellow, and orange. But the green will freeze just as well. Enjoy!

BTW- You can freeze just about anything that fits in the freezer, preserves items much longer, really!

I would like to know how to prepare green bell peppers for freezing. I would like to prepare whole peppers for stuffing. Do I have to blanche first, thaw then cook or can I just freeze, stuff and cook while frozen.

I stuff my bell peppers with minute rice, pasta sauce, diced chicken breast, and shredded cheese.

I clean and cut them up in 1" size pieces. Put in plastic bags and freeze. They only freeze well if used for cooking. I use them for my recipe "Stuffed Pepper soup" I have stuffed whole peppers and froze them also.

I wash them, chop them after removing the seeds and spread them out on a cutting board. I put them in the freezer then when they are frozen I put them in a zip lock bag. I have been doing this for years and also with celery.

I need to freeze some bell peppers so they don't go bad. Can I cook them after cutting them julienne style or do they need to be cooked first? I like to use them for fajitas and soups. Thanks.

No need to blanch any type of pepper; just cut and freeze. Be sure to pat dry and remove as much air from the freezer bag as possible to reduce freezer burn. It's the same for all types of onions too :-)

When freezing bell peppers, I usually clean, cut in strips, put in freezer bags and always chop while frozen. They are good for cooking only, as get too soft for anything else.

Bell Peppers are an exotic rarity; a vegetable that can be frozen successfully without blanching. Just cut them up and put them in a plastic bag and in the freezer.

I freeze the raw peppers as others have suggested, with the exception that I lay them out on a cookie sheet, freeze them solid (at least a couple of hours or overnight) and then bag in freezer weight bags. They can be removed from the bag in any amount needed without disturbing the rest of the peppers.

I like stuffed peppers, so I freeze for this also. Cut the top from the peppers and remove the seeds and veins. Then blanch them in boiling water for approximately 2 minutes, chill in ice water, drain well and again place on a cookie sheet, open side down, freeze and then bag. When ready to use just proceed with your stuffing recipe as usual.

How do I freeze red and green bell sweet peppers?

By Don P.

Answer This QuestionWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes

My mother cuts them in half, cores them, puts them in a ziplock bag and tosses them in the freezer. As simple as that. We grow our own peppers and have them all year long with the freezing process. When you thaw them out they can be a bit soft but the still have their flavor.

You can also make stuffed peppers and freeze them pretty much the same way. Just cook you "stuffing", and after cutting and coring the pepper, stuff the fresh pepper and put the different halves in a box or some other container to keep them up right while they freeze. When you want stuffed peppers for dinner, bring them out, let them thaw and bake them.

I just throw them in a freezer bag. Cutting is super easy when they are frozen :-)
