How to store peppers

The best way to store peppers is to keep them in a cool, dry place, such as a pantry or the refrigerator. Peppers should be kept away from direct light, as light can cause them to lose their colour and texture.

If you are going to store them in the refrigerator, it's best to place them in the refrigerator's crisper drawer, which is designed to keep fruits and vegetables fresh for a longer period of time.

It's important to keep peppers away from ethylene-producing fruits, such as apples and bananas, as the ethylene gas can cause peppers to ripen faster.

It's also important to handle peppers with care, as they are fragile, and can bruise easily. If you see any signs of damage or softening, it's best to use them as soon as possible.

If you have cut a pepper and have leftover, it's best to wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or foil and store it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Peppers can also be stored in the freezer, but it's important to slice or chop them first. They can be stored in airtight containers or resealable plastic bags for up to 8 months in the freezer.

It's important to note that different varieties of peppers have different storing preferences, for example, red peppers are best stored in a cool and dry place, while green peppers can be stored in a pantry or root cellar.
