Peppers, peppers, and more peppers.

Having a banner pepper year in the garden, primarily Italian Sweet Frying Peppers.

Ive already marinated a bunch and grilled and froze bunch for future use.

My question is, what else can I do with a mass amount of peppers that would store really well?

thanks
larry

Canning them would give you another long term storage option.

You could do banana pepper relish.

Cook them lightly then bottle them - or can them - in good quality EVOO, garlic and salt. The pieces that, in my humble opinion, should be the pieces of pepper cut top to bottom, following the lines that outline the pepper - usually 4 pieces. I preserve them in glass, but that's just the way we do them here, I like looking at them on the shelf waiting to be used!

I'd pickle them. They'd also be good pickled with whatever other peppers, sweet or hot, you might have.

There is banana peppers ketchup, a former friends grandmother used to make it and then you could make ajvar relish with it.

In the United States, it's not considered a safe practice to bottle or can items with garlic in oil. It's almost impossible to kill all the botulinum spores that way.

Glad to hear of your bonanza! I'm not doing as well... in Texas, of all places.

For my seasoning peppers, like cayenne and jalapeños, I freeze them on a tray, then vacuum seal them, and put them back in the freezer. When thawed, they are not as firm and crisp, obviously, but neither are pickled peppers. But, the taste in my foods is identical.

I freeze them before I vacuum seal them because it keeps them from being squeezed, and losing water.

I use them all winter long just as I would fresh peppers.
