I wouldn't recommend freezing them as the strong flavor will bleed into your other frozen food.  You can however can them by pickling them.  Here is a video demonstration:

I do chop of freeze in a heavy duty freezer bag...or you could put them in sealed plastic containers.  I also chop & freeze green peppers.............they don't stick together...........also celery freezes..i cut that samll...I use that for soup.....it can be cooked for dressing but it is a little too soft for me.............
