How do I keep cooked hot peppers from going bad?

Hope I git the right forum here...

I bought a basket of hot banana peppers and I want to fry them up in oil and garlic and let them sit in fridge until I use them up.
What is the best way to make sure they dont go bad?

Eat them all in three days or less.

...or freeze them.

If you store them in a glass jar in olive oil, then you will be creating a Botulism factory. Yes you can buy them in stores that way, but those companies spend milllions of dollars to be able to do it.

I guess I should ask then why do they sell them by the basket...no one could eat them that fast. Can I stire the peppers before cooking?

I've never seen them sold by the basket, though they are often displayed in a basket or a bin in the stores. Is that what you mean?

What do you have your peppers in that would need to be stirred before cooking?
