Red, Orange, Yellow and Green

If you have extra peppers, they can be perfectly be preserved in the freezer. You just need to cut in slices, put them in a plastic bag and freeze them. The lady who sells us veggies told us the trick. Carlos’ sister, Raquel, confirmed it’s not a good idea to freeze a whole pepper.

  1. puedo asegurarlo, el pimiento entero es una lata!! ahora he probado en tiras y mucho mejor. a mi me encanta congelar los puerros, es muy practico para las sopitas de verduras por las noches.

  2. Gracias Raquel por la confirmación. Solo otro consejo que nos dio la verdulera: Para congelar los puerros o cebolleta (ciboule en frances), es bueno meterlos en agua hirviendo durante 5 segundos, para matar todas las bacterias.

    English: Another suggestion our vegetable lady gave us was to blanch scallions or leeks for about 5 seconds before freezing them. This kills any bacteria she told us.

  3. What a colorful picture!!!!

  4. Just a reminder: blanching means putting vegetables in boiling water for 5-10 seconds.
