Up to this point, I have always stemmed and halved peppers before drying them. This year I have so many, it would be easier to just cut the stem and then dehydrate whole.
Probably a very silly question, but my question is whether there is any advantage to leaving the stem on when dehydrating whole peppers? Or rather, any disadvantage to taking them off first?
The ones I see in the store always seems to have stems on.
While I'm at it, same question for freezing whole peps. I leave stems on and then cut them off later. Any real advantage to cleaning and stemming before freezing?
