Don't do as I did. Found some frozen peppers labeled "hot", from 2009. Used about an ounce, chopped fine. Wore baggies on my hands, thank goodness. Fried up the sausage, added some hen of the woods mushrooms and the peppers, a jar of Emeril's, and tasted it. Am still looking for the top of my head, and I can't feel my lips. Two cans of Hunt's, half a carton of cottage cheese, and a partial package of cream cheese later, it may be semi edible! I might need to add some Maalox.
Someone mentioned never freeze hot peppers with the seeds in them. Words of wisdom!
