Chilli peppers bottled in brine freeze ok?


I have bought a large jar of mixed hot chillies with a drained weight of 480g. Once opened they should be consumed within two weeks. It seemed a good idea at the time as they only cost a couple of pounds. They are preserved in the bottle in a brine.

I was thinking of taking them out and freezing them, say half a dozen in a small bag. Is this a good idea, as there is no way I could eat all those chillies!

Well I think it's okay. I used to chill chillies as well to prevent them from drying and being useless... :)
