This week our garden has produced a ton of peppers with all the rain, and it is more than we can eat, see! So, I just diced them up and flash froze them. Then put them into freezer bags to use later. When you flash freeze like this, it freezes each piece separately instead of freezing them into one big lump.
Here is how it works:
1. Dice the vegetable or fruit.
2. Place on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.
3. Place in the freezer for 1-2 hours on sheet pan, once frozen transfer to freezer bags. Be sure to double bag them.
I use this same method on items like strawberries, blueberries, carrots, celery and more.
