It was pretty easy, although I think I should have worn gloves. That pepper juice can burn! And it stays on your hands for a while even after you wash them.
The peppers have been drying for several weeks. They look good, still red, and aren't molding or anything. So, I think I have succeeded.
I am not sure if I'll eventually put them in a bag or jar and use them whole. The other option would be to grind them into a powder and use them as chili powder. That might be cool. We'll see. Maybe I can do both. There are still two plants outside that haven't ripened yet.
