    Mamaw Smith does several things with her chili's and peppers.

    1: With bell peppers and jalapenos she chops them with onions and freezes them

    2: Jalapenos are sometimes strung and allowed to dry. How long they are good for beats me but I have seen Mamaw Smith use them almost a year later.

    3: Jalapenos and bell peppers and onions are used for a relish.

    4: I guess you could freeze or dry most any pepper. I have seen displays of beautiful peppers in Hispanic stores that were dried.

      Dried, frozen and pickled they last about forever.
