I'm looking at a grocery bag of produce from a friend's garden, and wondering what I'm going to do with it all. The cukes I think I'll pickle using Steve's recipe, the jalapenos I will probably freeze, but have no idea what to do with all the green sweet peppers.

You can cut up the green peppers and freeze them to add to sauces and stuff.

That was my thought too.

Slice some, dice some. I used to do it all the time when I could eat peppers. I would buy them on sale in bulk and have a freezer full of onions and peppers. Great to have on hand for pepper steak sandwiches, omelets with peppers and onions, etc. The Pirate asked me the other day how come I don't have any peppers in the fridge anymore. I have an electric slicer I bought years ago. I bought it so I could buy baloney, and other cold cuts in bulk size and slice them for sandwiches for the kids school lunches. After there were no more school lunches, it came in handy to slice leftover roast beef, pork, etc. for sandwiches. One of my best purchases. A lot cheaper than buying it at the deli counter. Also, if you buy onions in bulk, like ten pounds, great for slicing them on the machine and a lot faster. Less tears shed.

I still have bags of frozen peppers from previous years in the freezer from the same friend! She has a small farm, and you never know how hot the peppers are going to be. Apparently they cross pollinate, and each pepper must be carefully tasted if you don't want the top of your head blown off. I'm pretty sure these are bells, but I never know!

With The Pirate here so much of the time, they would have been gone long ago. I found myself shopping foods that only he would or could eat. Have I gone mad? I did that for two months only. Sorry son. Go buy your own food. Or learn to eat what I have on hand. YOU don't get to pick and choose in this house. This is my home, not yours. And I don't take requests.

Dawg, roast the bell peppers on the grill till they're black all over. Pop them into a heavy duty plastic bag and seal them till they're cool. Then you can rub off the burned skin with the help of paper towels. After you've seeded them they can be frozen or canned. TAA DAA...you're very own roasted peppers!

A good idea, Kayelle! These are green, would they be as good as red?

How about a pepper relish?

Sure they are Dawg. I think the red ones are extra ripe green ones but someone here knows for sure I bet.

I made some killer stuffed red bell peppers a few nights ago...
