In my home this week, I’ve been busy harvesting and preparing food for storage. Apples, fall garden greens and root veggies, and peppers. Every year I buy organic sweet bell peppers in bulk. Usually, I dice or cube them and then freeze in bags. This time, I decided to put them through my dehydrator. I also did a batch of Anaheim and other such peppers for future chili and Mexican dishes.
For the bell peppers, I chopped half of them in square inch cubes and the other half diced smaller. The square inch ones took well overnight. I use those for things like chicken curry. The diced ones are great for lasagna, pizza, quesadillas, and omelets.
Not only do dehydrated peppers save freezer space, they are a food that rehydrates fairly well for recipes such as soup, pizza, pasta, etc. Although they are softer than normal, we typically cook our peppers longer anyway for those kinds of recipes. They’re certainly comparable to using frozen peppers!And they’re pretty in those glass jars, aren’t they?
