I think I will have close to 20. I’m excited to use them in the kitchen, but we all know I haven’t been cooking much this summer. I don’t want them to go to waste, so I am refraining from picking them until I have a plan of pepper preservation. Say that five times fast.
Can I dry these things like I did my other herbs? A Google search led me to various Ask.com pages and another WordPress blog post that said yes. Yes, I can string peppers around my apartment like little homemade chili pepper lights. Yes, I could end up with dried peppers to crush and use as seasoning for delicious winter things such as chili, soups, curry, rice dishes, etc. I was taught to avoid exclamation points like the plague when I was in journalism school, but just this once: How exciting!!!
