Freezing Grilled Pepper Strips

September 1, 2016

When I harvest peppers in the fall, I roast some on my outside grill, seed them while they're still warm, and put the slippery product into a big bowl in the refrigerator to freeze the next day. I use a vacuum bag sealer, and I was wondering how I was going to get these slimy things into the bag. Using a food-grade plastic cutting mat that was a little narrower and about 2 inches longer than the bag, I cut a section of the mat to fit into the bag an inch or so. Then I piled peppers on the exposed length of the mat. I slid the peppers and mat into the bag, coaxing wayward pieces and then tipping the mat upright and pulling it out. This made a messy job a breeze.
