2012 has brought us an amazing crop of Jalapeno peppers. I use them in omelets, soup, stir fries and salsa, but they still keep coming. This morning I strung some of them with a big needle on button thread and hung them in the kitchen to dry. I can drop one into a pot of soup to add some heat, or rehydrate them to use for other dishes. This is a simple, fast and economical way to save some of summer's bounty!
