Quick Answers



Why can green peppers be frozen without blanching?

Unlike other vegetables, green peppers do not lose quality during freezer storage if their enzymes are not destroyed by blanching before freezing. Blanched peppers are limp and easier to pack, however, they can only be used in cooked dishes.
