It's pepper-picking time again already . . . which means that over the next four to eight weeks you may — at times — find yourself with more crisp, juicy green peppers on your hands than you know what to do with. Well, here is a suggestion that should help you dispose of that bumper crop.
In case you didn't know it (I didn't, until recently), peppers can be frozen. No blanching is needed . . . all you have to do is  slice the upper fourth of each fruit off,  remove the peppers' ribs and seeds,  place the gutted peppers — along with their tops — inside heavy plastic bags, then  expel the air from the bags, seal 'em up tight, and pop them into the freezer. Six months later (when supermarket pepper prices have gone through the roof) you'll have a supply of good-tasting, inexpensive garden-grown peppers as close as your freezer!
