I take it we are talking about bell peppers??

If so I always buy tons of them when they are cheap and in season and oven roast and skin them, then freeze them.

I take the seeds out and roast them in a moderate oven until the skins start to turn a little black then I leave them in a bowl, covered until they are easy to handle. Then I skin them and put them in freezer bags for all sorts of things

I use them in ratatouille, spaghetti sauce, on pizzas, in meatloaves and lots of other stuff. They also keep for ages in the freezer.

These are a great alternative for the ones you get in the supermarket that are always swimming in oil.

Hi I do also freeze mine...I dice some and slice some...
Diced for omelets, or sauteing and sliced for stir frying.
I heard if you freeze them whole for stuffing, they cook quicker.
I put mine diced and sliced in glad bags so I can take out what I want for a particular recipe...zip it up and return to the freezer.
Try making Pepper mustard...sweet or hot...recipe is in the recipe box thread. So easy and So Good !!!!

I've chopped up peppers and froze them and they are fine for cooking. I don't think they would be good for fresh like if you wanted pepper slices and dip. They'd be soggy. Not sure about stuffing them either. But fine for dicing or slicing to have on hand for recipes.

I freeze mine all the time. If I cut them, I freeze them overnight on a tray uncovered and then use my Foodsaver to bag them. I have also freezed some whole but I prefer them cut, they seem to retain more texture that way.
