I have seen a lot of things on the internet about freezing peppers. Most say to chop up, place on a cookie sheet, freeze, then place in a zip lock bag. Is there anything wrong with simply picking peppers off of the plant, placing in a zip lock bag and going directly into the freezer? The peppers I am speaking of are Tabasco, Thai, Kung Pow, Jalapeno, Habanera, Ancho, and Melrose.
The difference is between whole pods and chopped pods. You can just put the whole pods into a zip bag. However, if you chop them, freeze them on a cookie sheet first. Otherwise the chopped pieces will stick together in a big, frozen lump that will be difficult to use if you only need a tablespoon or two.
