    Most peppers will darken if given enough time in the season. I've been canning my banana peppers in a pickle type brine, hot and sweet. Seeds and all. Throw in some red pepper flakes, clove of garlic, and maybe a tsp of ground cayenne and they're all spicy! Some say they taste very similar to pepperoncini.

    All other mild or sweet pepper I de-seed dice and freeze to be used later in cooking dishes like meatloaf, eggs, stir fry, and salsa. Thing where texture wouldn't matter. It's my understanding that hot peppers can be frozen whole.

    I'm growing banana peppers this year for the first time. What do you do with all of them? I've been slicing in half and freezing. They sure are good roasted too. Didn't know they turn red.

    ....my back hurts.

    Peppers from left to right:
    Green bell, Big Jim, Cayenne, Jalapeno, Desperado, Hot Banana, Mosquerito, Serrano, Sweet Banana.

    Now I just wish the effing tomatoes would turn red so I'm able to can more salsa!

    Been there. Marinated those. De-shelled hard-boiled eggs are another good one.

    A friend of mine gave me a plablano early this summer but it has a serious bug problem I just can't seem to get rid of and it will not fruit. It's weird because it sits right next to my bell peppers, Anaheim, and reaper that are not affected.

    I met David Tran many years ago when he was just starting his Riverside operation. He taught me to dip dill pickles in Siracha.

    I had a volunteer bell pepper come up one year. Nursed it all summer and finally got a big red bell of it. it was hot as hell and must have been crossed with the neighbor's hot peppers.
