How should I store a cut bell pepper?

  • Recently I'm finding that I'm ending up using only part of a bell pepper for a meal, and so wish to store the rest for later.

    So how should I best store half-used bell peppers so that they stay as fresh as possible?

  • Put in a ziplock bag with a piece of paper towel to absorb moisture, and stick in the fridge. Also applies to lettuce.

    that's great, pretty much what I do now, but it's nice to have confirmation. I'll have to start using paper towel - at the moment I do use it for lettuce, didn't think to use it else where.

    I actually use the paper towel trick for a lot of fresh vegetables and herbs.
