It's pepper season in Central PA. Whether you get your peppers from the market or grow them in your own garden, it's a great time to cook with peppers and prepare them for storage during the off-season. We'll talk about ways to prepare peppers for later use that don't require canning. Learn how to freeze peppers whole and how to dry them for long-term storage in the pantry. Sweet peppers and hot peppers both make great seasonings for meats, seafood, vegetables and grain dishes, so let's freeze them to cook later or turn them into dry seasonings for use anytime. No registration necessary.
