I read where you can dry peppers by hanging them by the stem, my questing is do you dry them as whole peppers, do you have to cut and clean them out or do anything to them at all before hanging them?? thank you in advance for your answers

RE: drying banana peppers

Well i have never dried anything like that it takes a long time. I dry my own herbs by putting whatever i want to dry between two ribbed air conditioner filters. then i put the filters on a box fan, so the air is blowing through the filters, secure the filters to the fan with bungee cord, turn the fan on high. I usually let it run for 12 hours then flip the filters over, and let it go for another 12 hours. its not as easy as hang um and leave um, but there will be no bugs to worry about, or rotting (which sometimes happens in humid climits). It always works for me.

poolboy: Sounds like a good idea. I presume "ribbed" means the $3 paper filters? I bet those work well.

FYI, up here in OH we call 'em "furnace" filters, not AC filters :)

Don, Yes thats what i mean. the ones big enough to fit a box fan edge to edge. You can reuse the filters several times when you dry herbs and peppers.
