Sweet (Bell) Peppers
About me: Red, orange and yellow peppers are simply green peppers that were allowed to fully ripen. They are sweeter and need to be eaten sooner. Shapes and sizes vary from round to bell-shaped, to elongated and banana shaped. At our farm we usually only sell green peppers if there isn’t enough time in the season to ripen them. They are still very tasty but we love the sweet ones!
Storage: To refrigerate place peppers in a mesh bag, or paper towel, and then place inside a reused plastic bag, or container inside your hydrator drawer for 1-2 weeks.
To freeze: Wash and dry peppers. Freeze whole or cut into bite-size pieces and place in freezer bag, removing as much air as possible. Peppers will soften when thawed, so take out only the amount you need, and use them in recipes where their crisp texture is not necessary.
