Jalapeno peppers

I have quite a few jalapeno peppers, and was wondering the best way to preserve or keep them so they don't go bad. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thank you.

do you have a smoker or a grill that can be used as one?

if so, you can smoke dry jalapenos, which are then called chipotles. if not, you can either dry them in a dehydrator, or a low oven (around 200 degrees) for several hours.

finally, you can always pickle or freeze them. pickling is easy since it can be done in a water bath much like tomatoes. freezing works, but they will get a little mushy and then will need to be cooked in some way.

...or you can make Atomic Buffalo Turds. Jalapeno peppers stuffed with seasoned cream cheese, and a little bit of sausage, wrapped in bacon and smoked.

You could also make some jalapeno jelly.

I have never seen a ABT on a west coast menu.I will have to try them.I have only seen them stuffed with Cream cheese or cheddar and batter fried.

I've never seen them on a restaurant menu either. They're backyard BBQ food. You also see them at BBQ competitions.

I string them and hang them in my kitchen window to dry. I love the way they change colors while drying. They are also great raw, sliced, deseeded and filled with peanut butter. It's the only way I can eat them!

If I were you I would clean them up and then freeze them. I wouldn't want them to lose the fleshy part by drying them. I think that fleshy part of a jalapeno is the best!
