Kitchen Hints of the Day!

To store Jalapeno Peppers.........

* Store in a paper bag in the vegetable crisper of refrigerator.

* To freeze: Slice or chop peppers, then place in airtight containers or heavy-duty freezer bags, or wrap tightly in heavy-duty aluminum foil or plastic wrap.

* jalapenos can preserve them for pretty much indefinitely. Simply use a needle to string the peppers by their stems and hang them in a dry location. You can leave the peppers hanging or remove them once dry and store them in a dry location. Refrigeration is not necessary. You can also take dried jalapenos and grind them to use as an easy spice additive to meals.

* Jalapenos can be jarred or pickled. In either case, the jalapenos are generally left whole or sliced and packed tightly into jars. Then boiling water and any other additives the recipe calls for are added and the jar is sealed. You’ll find a wealth of recipes for pickling and jarring jalapenos in cook books and online, due to the variety of methods for this storage technique it’s best to find a recipe that applies to your particular needs.
