    I cut up and froze (in three seperate canning jars) yellow bell peppers, orange bell peppers and red bell peppers. I also saved the seeds from these store-bought peppers as my own fizzled out really early in the season, producing 2 dudds that just dried up about halfway through maturing. By slicing them up and freezing them in jars I can pull out just what I need when I need it and they taste nearly like fresh ones. I keep them for about 6 months or so, if they last that long. I only did 3 big peppers of each color. On a more personal note, I don't care for bell peppers that are still green. They give me terrible heartburn every time, and my absolute least favorite dish is stuffed green peppers (which happens to be my dad's fave so I had it alot as a kid.) Can that be called "child abuse," I wonder? :eek:

    Blurose--that sounds wonderful! Speaking of stuffed peppers, my family hates, hates, hates them! Nuts! I've even tried with sweet reds instead, but I think the association is still too strong.

    I made 7 quarts of fresh salsa to give to family for gifts, for a family get-together tonight and to enjoy for the next few weeks here at home. I'm so lazy, I even leave the skins on!

    I cheated! Since my pole beans mostly got eaten up by critters, I went to my local farm stand and purchased 25 lbs. of green beans to can. I got them all trimmed and cut ready for canning tomorrow. Hope I've got enough empty jars for the beans and my soon to be bumper roma tomato crop. I find that since my gastric surgery, I cannot digest fresh or frozen green beans so freezing them is out of the picture.

    OK, that 25 lbs of green beans turned into 20 qts. of canned green beans and 5 gl. bags of frozen. NOTE TO SELF: never buy that many green beans again! :p I also canned 6 pints of salsa from my first good tomato harvest. Sorry, I'm a REALLY bad photographer.
