Tips
  • Store in plastic bag in the vegetable crisper of refrigerator.
  • Green peppers will usually stay fresh longer than orange or red peppers.
  • To freeze: slice or chop peppers, spread in a single layer on cookie tray and freeze, then promptly place in airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags and return to freezer.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept constantly frozen at 0° F will keep safe indefinitely.
