Thank-you so much for your support this 2020 season, Ottawa-Gatineau! All of our CSA Memberships and Plant Sale are completely sold out. We are working hard to bring you a Fall Share Basket option so there's still a chance to join our farm-ily and support local, small-scale farming. Sign-up for our newsletter to be notified when our Fall Share becomes available.

Sweet (Bell) Peppers

                                                               

About meRed, 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!

StorageTo 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.
