The banana peppers are still going strong and the cayenne peppers are turning red at an amazing pace. They're so beautiful! My oven doesn't go low enough and I don't have a dehydrator, so I'm trying to hang dry them. I wash them well and thread a piece of thick thread through the base of the stem of each one and tie the two ends together. I then take another piece of string and tie the length of peppers to the shelves in my cabinet door. Because they're hanging in a dark place (unless, of course, the door is open) they should retain most of their color.
The picture looks much nicer if you ignore my messy pantry door.
I'll probably grind these up and make some red pepper flakes.
The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.
