Quick Balsamic Peppers

It only takes 10 minutes to cook this stunning side-dish and the health benefits are enormous. The more different colors, the more benefits including protection against cancer, heart disease, macular degeneration, arthritis, asthma, memory loss, the list goes on… I keep this recipe simple because peppers have so much flavor and this doesn’t overpower them, just enhances them. I could eat only this for dinner, it’s so good! And so healthy!! - Jenny Jones

    Picked a lot of mini peppers. Can you freeze this recipes?

    • Jenny

      I have never frozen it but I don’t think cooked peppers would survive very well in the freezer.

        These should freeze fine. I do a similar thing with hot Hungarian peppers with a little tomato to use on Italian sausage sandwiches, freeze in small ziplock bags, thaw & use as desired.

      I have frozen raw pepper for use in cooking and they work fine. I usually slice them lengthwise about 3/4 inch wide. I have also diced them and frozen in freezer bags. I think these might freeze well but may be a little limp. They would probably be good for sandwiches, salads, etc.
