what to do with these thai chili peppers
I bought 2 thai chili pepper plants this year, because last year I did very well with 2 plants. But, the plants I bought this year yielded very small peppers, unlike the long ones I got last year. They are so small, I don't know what to do with all of them. I don't want to take all the seeds out of every one. Can I just put them all on a screen and dry them, then grind them up, seeds and all? I also have a dehydrator, but they seem pretty small to dehydrate. Any recommendations?
Also, since it seems like there is more than 1 variety of thai chili pepper, does anyone know the name of the long, thin variety? I definitely don't want this variety again.
