Sweet Bell Peppers Are Having Babies!

I am over run with bell pepper this year. Has anyone had success at freezing these, and if so, for how long can you expect them to keep? Does anybody have other methods of preserving them?

Back a few years, when we had a pepper crop, we cut em in half, cleaned out the seeds, and blanched them in boiling water for 2 minutes, then dunked em in ice water, before freezing peppers. Pretty much same treatment for brocoly.
They retain their shape and flavor real good in the freezer for 6 to 8 months.
We ain't had a decent pepper crop in this part of the country for 4 years now, so freezin them ain't been a problem.

The Missus cuts them up in little squares, spreads them out on a cookie sheet, freezes them, then puts them up in baggies. I think after that she just uses them in cooking. They are too mushy after thawing for salads & stuff.

DW I just cut them up and put them in a zip lock type freezer bag and have had good luck with them keeping.
