Even though it's only the two of us here, I still buy about a half dozen or so peppers (of assorted colors for variety) regularly and usually use them within a couple of months.

Maybe this is the difference. I use peppers I buy within a few days. I don't even mind if they dry out a bit - they're no good raw like that but you get a slightly more concentrated flavour when they're cooked and the whole cooking process seems to plump them back out.

Wish we had the luxury of being able to do that, Snoop. We live nearly 30 miles from the nearest good market so I have to buy more than can be used in a couple of days.

Hello RedKitty

If I am not using them, on the day I buy them, I put them in the fridge. It does keep them fresh longer.
Or if the temperatures are not going below zero or above 8, I put them in the garden. Leaves me with more room, in the fridge.

they go in my fridge b/c I like chilled peppers in my salads, if I am cooking with them it doesn't much matter, but I love raw chilled green bell peppers...
