How to Store Bell Peppers

Buying in bulk and wondering “can you freeze bell peppers?” The answer is yes! Remove the stems and seeds, and cut in half. Arrange the halves on a tray and place in the freezer. Once they’ve firmed up, you can transfer the halves to a freezer-safe bag with all the air removed. Those peppers will last for up to a year!
