I just picked all my late jalapeno peppers and I've got a ton of them! Can I freeze them? How is the best way to do it? thanks!
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Yes, absolutely. I find it easiest to cut them up first--remove the stem, seeds, membranes and cut into chunks. Then just stick them in a ziploc bag.
Yes, I have a tone in my freezer. I freeze them whole and wash/cut them right before I cook them.
Yes you certainly can. I always buy up chilies...whenever I see them and freeze. em Using them from frozen is a snap!
Absolutely! I cut them in half, stem and seed them, and then spread them on a tray for an hour in the freezer before either vacuum sealing them or popping them in a ziplock freezer bag and storing them in the freezer. Works great!
Thank you! I'll use them all winter!
I hope this reference will help you in all of your freezing of veggies to enjoy later in the year.
