Quick Tip: Freeze those Roasted Peppers

Just found an interesting tip over at Kalofagas. Roast a big batch of peppers during the summer and freeze them for year-round use. Visit Kalofagas for instructions and while you’re there, check out Peter’s recipe for Htipiti dip – a Greek roasted red pepper dip.

    My method for preserving roasted peppers is to slit one side so they can be opened flat then layer them in a wide, flat plastic container. I start with a sheet of plastic wrap and olive oil upon which I lay the first layer of peppers. Then, I lay 2 sheets of plastic wrap with a light coat of olive oil between them so they will separate. Put the second layer of peppers and oil on top of that and repeat the process until the container is full. The peppers keep very well and you can take out smaller portions than if you froze them in one bag plus they will not be misshapen and stuck together.

    Do the peppers freeze well if the skins are already off? Love the site!!
