Freezing Bell Peppers

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.

Bell peppers, celery, onions (and some fruits, like grapes and bananas) can all be frozen without blanching. (I do it all the time). For the peppers, core and wash and thoroughly dry (leaving water on them hastens deterioration because ice crystals form) and then pack in freezer container or bags. To keep their shape (if you have a crowded freezer) you might want to wrap individually and stack them inside something else, like a paper milk carton.

I pre-stuff my bell peppers with the mixture below and when ready to use, take out and place in 2-3 inches of water with a lid and steam all til done. My stuffing is ground beef, minute rice, stewed tomatoes, and diced onions mixed together and spooned into each pepper. Put caps back on the peppers, but remove the stem and store in freezer bags.

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

I wash, core and chop my bell peppers then put them in a freezer bag. I can take out what I need that way. Celery can also be frozen. For bananas I peel and slice in rounds and freeze on a flat surface then put in bags. I think you can freeze the whole banana too if you are going to use them for bread.
