Wordless Wednesday – end of the crop

Last of the ripe red, yellow and orange peppers

Despite the cold weather this autumn I think this is the latest that I’ve picked ripe peppers.  They were planted in the bed between the rows of olives so they were protected from cold winds and the first frosts.  I picked these on Monday knowing that they wouldn’t survive the hard frost of Monday night.  Once they were roasted I removed their skins and seeds and have frozen most for future use the rest I’ll dress with new season oil, capers and preserved lemons.

I also picked all the green ones and put them in the fridge; they won’t ripen now, but I can still use them in stir fries for a while.

  1. Christina the peppers look very appetizing. I did not know that they could freeze once fried: this is the good thing about the blog, that you learn new things. Congratulations for your harvest of peppers! Greetings from Margarita.

  2. Yum! That’s a nice tip roasting up the peppers and freezing. I didn’t grow peppers but roasted some store-bought ones recently along with the last tomatoes of the season, which I did grow. Made a delicious soup.
