Lol... I'm the proud owner of three of those grinders. One for coffee, one for flaxseeds and nuts, and one for most everything else, including chiles.

Ditto for stringing. I kept a lot of Thai Hots like that. Also freeze lots of peppers.

I had two grinders, now down to one. But it's OK since my coffee maker has a built in grinder. Tried hot pepper-spice flavored coffee ONCE, and learned quickly that single purpose grinders are much better.

Wash them. Dry them. Put them in a ziplock and freeze them.
Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

A couple things:

Stringing them works nicely. I use a needle and dental floss (not minty!). Dental floss is really strong and won't break halfway thru the process. Watch out--the floss does pick up some heat from the peppers, so be careful about touching it.

Freezing--if you usually seed them before use, seed them before freezing. I like jalapeno poppers, and I froze some whole jalapenos. I seeded them just before I used them and they were too hot for me--the heat seemed to migrate into the flesh from the seeds and membranes with freezing. If you don't seed your peppers before use, they can be frozen very easily, no blanching needed, just toss them into a ziplock. Works for bell peppers, too.

I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
