I do this all summer long, for a year long supply for pizza, chili and other dishes.

First, I wash my peppers. Then I dice them up into the size I like for my recipes. (the seeds and pulp go into the compost bin).

Next, I blanch them - which means I place them inside a strainer and dip it into boiling water for about 1 minute. This stops the ripening process, but isn't long enough to cook the pieces. After 1 minute, remove from the boiling water and plunge it into ice water.


When cool, remove from the water and drain.

Drain well, and pat dry. I then place on a cookie sheet and freeze for about 2 hours. Then I take them off of the cookie sheet and put them into a ziplock freezer bag and place back into the freezer. By doing it this way, they don't all stick together in a large clump.

I just remove from the bag however much I need when cooking.

We just slice them and throw them in a freezer bag. When you need some just pull out what you want. You can run them under some warm water briefly to make dicing easier or throw them directly in your pan if slices are what you need.
