| One peck is 8 dry quarts, or 1/4 of a bushel. |
Yeah, I don't know what to make of that either....
Then, I get them into the house, and the wife says- "Where did these come from? It's mid-November!"
So, anyway, since we cannot possibly use them all fresh, I diced up a kilo of them, wrapped them in 100g packets, and put them in the ziplock. The only problem is that if I did all of them except for the 10-15 we might get through fresh, we would have a freezer of nothing but peppers...
Hellooooo neighbors and students!!!! Or if you live in Japan and want to share the bounty, drop me an e-mail.
But at any rate, if you find yourself with a peck of peppers and some freezer space, just dice them up and put them in sandwich bags or plastic wrap, then into a big ziplock and freeze them. You don't need to blanch them, making peppers the easiest garden veggie to freeze for the winter.
This winter's spaghetti sauce will be twice as good due to these beauties.
Now what to do with 2 Kg of green paste tomatoes.... Suggestions?
