Frost Damaged Jalepeno Peppers

We had 6 jalepeno plants that were doing really good well. We had some very cold unexpected weather last night and this morning everything was dead. So we took off tons of jalepenos that covered the plants. They are all kind of soft, from the frost I guess. I'm wondering if they would still be ok to chop and freeze for stews and soups and stuff? Are they safe to eat still? Can we get sick?

They will be fine to freeze and use in cooking. Salsa is probably not a good idea.

Yes, they're safe to eat. They only got cold, not poisoned. They might look a little funny but when they're cooked who's to know.

No, you won't get sick. They may be a bit soggy, but will work fine for salsa, (just keep it cold) casseroles & anything that's cooked. They will re-freeze fine. It's an old wives tale that once something freezes you supposedly can't refreeze it.

This includes meat. My mom worked in the meat administrative offices for Safeway & she answered this question all the time when people would call in. Of course, with meat, you wouldn't want it to be thawed out for more than a day in the fridge before re-freezing. You just have to use common sense.

They will be okay if you keep them in the freezer in a baggie and just take them out as you need them.
