We are growing peppers and tomatoes to make salsa. Our peppers are already ready and we don’t a red tomato yet. How do I preserve the peppers until my tomatoes get ripe?

If you are saving them for salsa, you can freeze them. They will lose some of their crispness, but will have all their flavor. Since you are using it for salsa, the crispness is not as important. Just chop them the way you want to, spread it on a cookie tray and pop it in the freezer. When the peppers are frozen, you can place them in a zip bag and keep them in the freezer until you need them.
