Freezing peppers

    So we picked the absolute worst time to remodel our kitchen...

    I have TONS of jalapenos and habaneros and no kitchen to do anything with them.

    Can I wash, vacuum seal and freeze whole peppers? I plan to mainly use them in my sausage making so them losing their crispness won't really bother me.

    thanks guys!

    We've always cut off the stem and split the peppers....  rinsed and  vac packed... I don't know why but that is what we did....    

    Maybe the peppers took us less room when split etc...    I just do what Bride says.....

    We just vac pac them whole and freeze. Works great.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I think I'll just leave them whole. Stemming them would be nice, but that would mean dirty dishes and I have no kitchen sink. :P

    We do it all the time too. 

    We don't grow our own but buy the packs of multicolored peppers & slice them up & freeze in bags for later use.
