A six pack of hot banana peppers has yielded a HUGE crop. Can they be frozen ( would use them chopped in future ) and if so, what's the best way to freeze? Leave whole, seed them first, etc.

Thanks for any help you caan give.

Congratulations on your harvest! Banana peppers can be successfully frozen. Start by rinsing them off and wiping them off. Then cut the stem end off of each pepper and then slice in half long-ways. Use a spoon to remove the seeds. Set them upside down on a papertowel and allow them to air dry. They need to be dry before you pack them for freezing or they will stick together. It only takes 15-20 minutes. Pack them into plastic containers or freezer bags and label them, then set them in the freezer. You can take out one or as many pepper halves as you need. I hope you can enjoy yours all winter long!
