Jalapeno peppers

My six Jalapeno Pepper Plants are overflowing with peppers, I have at least 50 plus (most likely closer to hundred of these little darlings)

2013-01-01 2477 (500x375)

Some of them are starting to ripen.. I figure a third of them can turn red and be smoked and dried and ground into chipotle, the rest can be split into half dried and ground for homemade spice mix’s and the last 3rd can be slice and canned with a few stuffed and eaten in fresh dishes 🙂

Do you grow hot peppers, and if so, do you harvest them while all green or do you let them grow to turn red, do you like them fresh or do you mainly process them for use thought out the year..

    I pickle them. Then I have a whole bunch for making salsa and my men like them in sandwiches throughout the year. My son eats them out of the jar for fun and especially when he gets colds. They help with the stuffiness.

    “Yes!” To all If the above…
    Although, I must admit that the majority of the green ones come off of the plant when frost is no longer just a suggestion, but there’s that “certain feeling” in the air; )

    I have one jalapeno plant. It has one jalapeno on it that I am letting go red (it’s orange right now). This is my first year growing them. I have since learned how to prune to get better growth so next year I hope to do better.
