Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Preserving Hot Peppers
I was advised to save hot peppers by flash freezing them or by drying them. I cut the tops off some and removed the seeds. They went into the freezer in a cake pan. Once frozen I will bag them up to use one at a time. Others I threaded onto fishing line and hung in the mechanical room where it is very warm.
I wore my gardening gloves while I did this, but I realize now only the palm was non porous and the tops of my fingers are burning from the hot pepper oils. I don't dare touch my face.
