Freezing in portion size
  1. Place peppers in heavy duty freezer bag in portioned amount for individual recipe.
  2. Label and date bag.
  3. Freeze.
Notes
  1. Freezing peppers to be used as needed in varying amounts is best done with the flash freeze method. Peppers will not stick to each other and will make it easier to grab a handful here and there.
  2. If freezing in specific portion sizes for recipes, it is okay to go for the quick method, because the peppers will separate as they thaw and it is not such a big issue when you are using the whole bag.
