How To Roast and Freeze Red Peppers

In the fall Michele likes to purchase red peppers from her local market, roast and freeze them for use over the winter.

  • Preheat your oven to 375 F. 
  • Wash peppers, cut in half and remove seeds and any white membrane. 
  • Place skin side up on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast for 35-40 minutes until the skin is blacken and blistered. 
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool. 
  • Remove skins and place on a parchment lined tray. 
  • Place in freezer. Once frozen transfer to a freezer bag which is labeled and dated.

Use your roasted red peppers in sauces, soups, or chili, on sandwiches or a burger, in a dip like hummus, salsa or bruschetta.
