Care & Storage:
To keep peppers fresh, refrigerate in a bag or airtight container. They’ll last up to several weeks stored in this manner.
Easy Prep Ideas:
Peppers can be eaten raw – add them to salads, dip them, or eat them plain. They can also be used cooked in soups, sauces, stir fry, salads, or baked or roasted.
Tips & Tricks:
Did you know you can freeze peppers? Without blanching, even! Just remove the seeds, chop them up, and flash freeze them on a cookie sheet (this will keep them from sticking together, so you can later remove just the amount you need). After they are frozen, store them in a freezer bag or container for winter use in casseroles, soups, sauces and stir fries.
