We planted quite a few different types of peppers this year and I was wondering what kinds could be dried. Also, I was needing to know how to dry peppers.

Thanks in advance!

all can be dried.

tie string around the stems, individually, but many on one line, and hang...

I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!

Thin skinned peppers dry better with the method that RugbyHukr suggested. You will probably get better results slicing thick walled peppers and drying in the oven at a low temperature setting or using a dehydrator.

Composting is more than good for your garden. It's a way of life.

I roast mine in my showtime rotisserie . Just be careful not to let them burn then freeze take out as you need them sure is good eating.

I have a Showtime, do you use the basket, or just skewer them?

It sounds like a much better method.

I line the basket with foil so they dont fall out. I have used the skewers but like the basket better it is a whole lot neater.

I have also roated on a regular ole BBQ but be sure to stay upwind of the hot ones or your eyes will pay the price.

My parents have also roasted peppers in the oven but the smell stays in the house for days.

They also freeze exceptionally well and then are so ready to use in recipes. I just throw hot peppers in a bag and I cut bell peppers in thirds or fourths (along lines) and remove the seeds and pop them in a bag. Last a couple years.

I think I will try freezing, hang drying, dehydrating and roasting to see which way we (us and our birds) like the best. They will mainly be for the birds, they love peppers!

Thanks again;
Victoria
