  • Keep bell peppers fresh by washing just before serving.
  • Cutting bell peppers:
    • After washing, cut off stems and cut peppers in half – lengthwise or crosswise.
    • Remove seeds and the white membrane from the inside.
    • Cut peppers into rings, strips or dice them into squares.
    • Cut peppers can be stored (covered) for 2 days in the refrigerator.
  • Whole peppers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days; they are easy to freeze for longer storage. No blanching is needed. Place peppers in freezer bags or containers; seal and label with the date. Frozen peppers should be used within 8 months.
