I grew too many hot peppers this year and in an attempt to utilize them I decided to try and dry them. The weather outside is already too chilly for drying them in the sun. I decided the next best thing was by the pot belly stove. I had some old window screens in the attic so I put them to work. I am experimenting with which prep method works best. Can I just throw the whole ones on the screen and they will eventually dry out? Or is cutting them open and removing the seeds the best way to go? I'll keep you posted on the progress.
