Bell peppers will last approximately 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator, but can also be frozen.

For best preservation of flavor and quality, store peppers in a plastic bag in the vegetable drawer of your refrigerator.

If you plan on freezing your peppers, slice or chop them up, place in a single layer on a cookie sheet and freeze; then promptly place the pieces in an airtight container or heavy-duty freezer bags for future use.
