I harvested some cayenne peppers. How do I preserve them? Can they be
frozen ...whole or with seeds removed? I cut some up and removed the seeds
and left them to dry. Will these be able to be ground up into cayenne
powder?

I still doit the way my ancestors did, string athread through the stems and
hang them in a worm airy place. They used the attic but I have to use a shed.
The slim cayene dry nicely.

Jo:

Yes they can be frozen, I would stem/seed them first. We put japalenos in
the food processor, freeze them in snack size bags. Break a chunk off to
use.

I dry them whole in the oven on the lowest temp then grind them up.

We also make cayenne pepper juice - stem/seed cover with vinegar add salt
and garlic to taste. Cook till very mushy. Put through food mill. Use
liberally!

Why get rid of the seeds? The seeds contain a lot of the flavor.

I put our hot peppers in the toaster oven and set it at 250 degrees.
This let them dry slowly. Once they were crisp (and still hot), I put
them in old jelly jars, *** the lids on tight, and let the jars
seal. This probably wasn't necessary -- I have stored dried peppers in
paper bags for a number of years without any hint of spoilage. They got
eaten by bugs one year, though.

Ray:

Cosmetics for the sauce, the seeds make white bits that really detract from
the appearance.
