Ever used dehydrated bell peppers? How did they work out?

Asked by keobooks (12515 points ) January 5th, 2012

I have terrible luck with bell peppers. I never have one in the fridge when I need it, so then I go buy some. THEN I never use those and they go bad. I don’t want to have to rush out to the store every single time I need one pepper.

I saw Penzey Spices sells dyhydrated bell peppers. I’ve used dehydrated onions and they work quite well in a pinch the rare times I’ve run out of onion. But because onions keep almost forever, I almost never use them. I think I’d use the bell peppers a lot.

I just wondered if anyone has used them and found them as a halfway decent emergency bell pepper replacement.

I have not tried dehydrated bell peppers, however, I have cut up bell peppers and then frozen them, and that has worked out quite well.

@Aethelflaed GA. Bell peppers are the easiest things to freeze. You don’t have to blanch them or process them at all. Cut and freeze. My freezer is full of them.

@Aethelflaed I like that solution even BETTER. I could freeze them in portions. They’d be ‘fresher’ than dyhydrated

@keobooks Indeed. Plus, they’re all full-sized and everything. And then, fajitas!

Here’s another vote for freezing them. You can roast them or not first.

I have had dehydrated bell pepper in dried soup mix. It works, but it’s not nearly as good as the frozen ones.

I put fresh chopped bell peppers in the freezer, so I never have a need for the dehydrated ones.
