Chilies

Not sure where this might go, I've been growing green hot chillis this year and was wondering what is the best way to store them for the winter. Drying them out or something? Not really to sure how either.

Any help is much appreciated.
Thanks

They freeze well. You can also dry them or store them in olive oil (keep in the fridge).

How do I dry them if I wished to do that?

If I was to freeze them should I put them in to freeze them?

I dehydrate mine--but if you don't have a dehydrator, I think you can hang them to dry. Someone else who might get up later might know--I'd have to do an Internet search.I just put mine in a ziplock bag in the freezer.

You could roast them on a BBQ if you like. Just long enough to make them have black spots. Then *sweat* them in a paper bag for 30 minutes and slip the skins off.

They freeze very well after roasting.

Or, make a relish of them and then freeze.

Sure, I have a ton of sauce recipes. I'll look for a "Chili BBQ" and post it for you.

if the peppers are thin walled (not like a thicker bell pepper) and if you have a place in your house that's relatively warm with low humidity, simply string them up by running a thread and needle through the stem of the pepper to make a sort of stringer. they'll dry out in no time, then you can hang the stringer in your pantry or kitchen for quick use. some people even use them as a decoration.

You can also make them into a condiment. Every fall I make several types of hot sauce, both fresh and fermented, and all different levels of heat. Depending on how you bottle and store it, they will easily last until the following year.

Cayenne can simply be dried and ground in a coffee mill (ideally one that's not used for coffee).
