    Default Preserving sweet peppers?

    I got some red and yellow peppers on sale yesterday and am wondering the
    best way to preserve them. Not sure how I will use them in the near future
    but am thinking maybe on sandwiches or in omlets.

    I plan to char them first over a gas burner, then cut into strips.
    I googled preserving them and found this:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------
    To Freeze Peppers: Halve sweet peppers (green, red, yellow or purple),
    remove the core and seeds, and slice into julienne
    strips or small 1/4" chunks. Pack them into a freezer bag, squeeze out the
    air and throw them in the freezer. That's it! Frozen
    peppers are best used in a dish that gets sauteed, such as a stir-fry, or
    added to onions and potatoes for a tasty omelet.

    To Pickle Peppers: Prepare peppers as above. Fill a clean pint or quart jar
    to within an inch of the top with the chopped
    peppers. Pour in white vinegar to cover all peppers. Cover with a plastic
    lid if possible, as the vinegar will gradually corrode
    metal lids. Store the jar in the back of your refrigerator for up to 12
    months. The peppers will stay crunchy for a few months
    but will gradually soften. Spoon them out of the jar as you need them. The
    vinegar is flavorful, too. My favorite pickled peppers
    are a colorful mix of yellow, orange and red Hungarian hot wax peppers.
    They're great on sandwiches or mixed into pasta and
    bean salads.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    My first thought was to just freeze them as mentioned above but I'm
    wondering about the pickled too. If pickled, does just vinegar sound good?
    Or should I add some spices to that? If so, what spices?

    I might just try both ways and learn something but any opinions/suggestions
    are welcome.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm thinking at least some cracked black pepper might be good?

    I bought a bunch of red peppers a few months back and julienned them
    and put them in the dehydrator and put them in a ziploc bag, so I
    think theoretically as long I keep them dry they will last a long,
    long time.
