Just remove the seeds. Set them between two paper towels. Store in a dry area like near a window that gets lots of sun and wait 3 or 4 weeks. Then bam .Easy

I just spread them out on a paper plate and put them on top of the fridge for a couple weeks. I also write what they are on the plates. Make sure the peppers you seed are nice and ripe or they wont work. After they are dry I take a sample of 6 seeds or so and place them in a fairly damp paper towel inside a sandwich bag for a week or two to make sure they sprout. If they do I store them.(the dry ones)
Good luck!

I just remove the seeds and put them in a shot glass for a couple days till dry then put them in a bindle made from parchment paper. Staple shut and store until needed. works great for me and they will keep for a season at least.

Be careful handling them when they are ready to store. Just because they're dry doesn't mean you won't get Capsaicin on your fingers(don't ask how I know)!
