You Can Freeze Onions, Peppers and Celery

Updated on January 10, 2014

Onions and Peppers

Frugal Freezing, Onions, Peppers, Celery

Summer is a wonderful time for so many things! But what I enjoy the most about summer is the fresh fruits and vegetables, so I like to preserve the freshness for as long as I can. I do this by freezing fresh onions and peppers to use in my soups, stews and other recipes during the winter months.I understand that onions are readily available and not necessarily expensive over the winter months I just like to have onions from my garden at my finger tips. Peppers on the other hand can be relatively expensive out of season. Even if you do not grow your own garden it is easy during the summer to find inexpesive peppers and onions at roadside stands. I also like to freeze celery, we do not eat it raw in my house so I only buy it to put in recipes. I but it by the bunch and then what I didn't use ends up sitting in my refrigerator and goes bad. Don't waste it freeze it! I chop it into small pieces and freeze it for soups and stews over the winter months. I believe in being frugal. I was raised waste not want not.

Tip#1 pick them when they are just the right size for you.

Tip#2 wash them, for onions peel away the outer skin and chop

Tip#3 green peppers I cut into long thin slices or smaller diced pieces (neither of these

need to be blanched for freezing)

Tip#4 pat off the excess water with a paper towel

Tip#5 spread them out on a cookie sheet, cover with plastic wrap and freeze.

After they are frozen remove them from the cookie sheet and put in quality freezer bags or containers making sure that you suck or push out the excess air to prevent freezer burn. You can store them for several months this way. Enjoy!

The same process above applies to celery.
