Roasting jalapenos brings out the pepper’s sweetness, which is nice. Still, it also breaks down the fleshy cell walls, releasing the juices, which are then infused with the pepper’s more concentrated heat in the seeds and inner membranes, making the whole pepper almost as hot as the seeds and inner membranes. Jalapenos and other green peppers belong to an odd category of vegetables that don’t require blanching before freezing.
