Freeze your peppers to use later

I have posted before about my Pepper Relish. It's good stuff ya'll! People just love it. Me and the hubs just sit around thinking about what else it would be good on... Anyways, yesterday we picked some of the year end peppers. We have been slacking on picking them and I wanted to make sure I got them off the vines before they went bad. However I did not have time to make relish with them last night.

I use all kinds of peppers. Some are sweet, most are hot though. I love having different colors as well. The orange, red and yellows just really make beautiful relish.
 Then I just put them out on a dish towel and let them kind of air dry.

Then I package them up in gallon ziplock baggies and put in the freezer. I ended up with 5 of the large bags, then one little quart bag. Also I didn't notice, but the dishtowel I was using has little peppers on it .  How fun.  Then sometime this winter when it is getting dark early or we have some time to spend inside, I'll either can the relish myself or bring the frozen peppers to a canning party :) I'll probably end up with a few more bags before the the plants completly quit making....
we are still using many of the jalepenos ( they are our favorite) for cooking on a daily basis. I also will freeze a gallon or so of jalepeno pepper slices to use this winter in homeade salsas, pizzas, tacos etc.

  1. What a great tip! Right now, we have GOBS of jalapenos. Thank you for sharing it at Tuesdays with a Twist! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures
