What do you do with lots of end of season peppers?

The bell and sweet peppers were outstanding and prolific this year. So prolific that last weekend I was left to pick the rest before the frost would kill them. I picked about 4 bushels and I said, that's enough! What is on the counter is about 3/4 of a bushel all cut up and then frozen on sheets in the freezer for a few hours so they can be bagged up.

We now have peppers ready to use during the winter. Unfortunately there are 3 bushels left. Anyone need some peppers? I may try canning some this weekend and see how that works.

Yum I love bell peppers and sweet peppers! Good luck with the canning.

I'm allergic to peppers... so I don't go anywhere near them.

That's a lot of peppers. Can you dehydrate them to reconstitute later?

I have dehydrated some of the green ones but they look funny-- dark brown, black color and all shriveled up. So we'll see. It's all a huge experiment.
