    I found a bargain on red,green, and yellow bell peppers, and I'd like to freeze them, possibly with chopped onions, usually for stir fries, and other things cooked.

    No problem! Here's my general process:

    Wash them and cut out stems and cut peppers in half. Then remove the seeds and membrane. Cut peppers into strips, dice or slice, depending on how you plan to use them. Then freeze the peppers in a single layer on a cookie sheet with sides, about an hour or longer until frozen. (Flash Freeze) Transfer to a ziploc bag when frozen, excluding as much air as possible from the bag. Pour out the amount of frozen peppers needed, reseal the bag and return to the freezer.

    You can easily add onions to this mix or bag separately icon_smile.gif

    Thanks Tish! I have been doing just what you said to do. I was just wondering if I was doing it right. So many things need to be blanched, so I was just making sure. Thanks again neighbor! lol I forgot to ask about green beans too. When I see them cheap (not often lol) I would like to freeze them as well.

    Actually, I don't even bother with flash freezing. I just dump the slices in a big freezer bag. I think the odd shape prevents them from freezing together. Diced prolly wouldn't work like that, though. icon_smile.gif
