Dried Peppers/frozen peppers
I still haven't gotten a ripe pepper but I am sure I am days away from an onslaught of fresh red pods. I dont want to deal with canning so my options are probably drying them or freezing them. If I dry them, should they be stored in an airtight container? Or do they need some air to keep from going rancid. If I freeze them, do I freeze them whole or do I gut them first? How long will they last if they are frozen/dried? I would like to hear some opinions before I commit any of my peppers to one or the other method of preserving them. Give me your thoughts.
