Help! Yellow and red pepper bumper crop

What to do with all of them, I must have 50 coming in next week, all gorgeously orange and red, I am thinking about grilling? freezing? Ack! I never had this many before.

Anyone have ideas?

I think pepper plants like growing in my new garden boxes..omg. So.

  1. Oh you are so lucky! I use a basque preparation...roast them, let them sweat a few minutes, and then peel and seed. Heat some olive oil, sliver some garlic, and gently brown the garlic. Throw in the peppers - I usually cut into big strips - and saute for several minutes. I add a little sugar at the end, and then let them cool. WONDERFUL! I freeze them in "blobs" on a cookie sheet, then double bag in freezer-quality bags. Great in anything, soup, stews, sauces, you name it!

    THey would be great grilled, too.

    1. Do stuffed peppers freeze?

      Roast and jar?

        1. 1) Just cut them up and freeze them in plastic bags. 2) Saute some with onions (and meat if you wish) and freeze as base for pasta sauce. 3) Stuffed peppers do freeze, best in lots of tomato sauce to keep everything moist.

            Thanks guys, I am going to try most of that this week. It's really appreciated.

          2. I love Red Pepper soup! Saute pepper chunks in EVOO and garlic until tender, blend in blender with chicken stock, until a nice thick consistency. Add cream, sour cream, half and half, even parm if desired. But even with NO dairy, this soup will taste rich and delcious! A huge favorite of mine.
