How to store red chili ?

Postby Joernolav » Tue Jun 02, 2020 1:03 pm

We have a little red chili plant in our tiny herb plant box. Have never grown chili before. We don't use chili every day. How do you store or preserve them? I don't want to discard them due to over ripening.

You might want to google but I would blanch them and them seal in a freezer bag and freeze. I did this to some rather large okra yesterday that a YouTube video suggested.
3 min in boiling water
cool in ice water
seal in bags

Take them out on the boat and eat them. Jump in the water to cool off if you need to.

Back in the day I used to sell fresh chilies we used to keep them in newspaper in a cool dark place they would last maybe 3 to 4 weeks

I smoke mine on hickory a while and then put them in the oven to finish drying out then grind them for seasoning. it would probably be a safer product if you had a dehydrator
