Storing green chillies?

Post by gingerjo on Thu 10 Sep 2009 - 22:22

Anyone know how to store green chillies? I have read various things on the net, have put some in the freezer as several people said, but wondered if anyone has grown and stored them successfully.

Well I have always popped them in the freezer Jo as when I tried to store some out in the shed they not only looked awful after a while, but didn't taste any good either!

I just keep mine in a dish on kitchen windowsill, turn them every now and then, they gradually turn redder and dry out at same time. Some do go off but kept us going most of last winter. Never thought of freezing them, but good idea to chop some and freeze. Not got so many this year though.

\thanks Di. I have loads, far too many for the freezer. Will try that too, they get hotter as they get redder don't they?

They do a bit, and they reckon the smaller red ones are hotter. Its the seeds and membrane that are the hot bits, so if you don't want too much heat discard them.

My chilli plant is growing green and red ones at the same time and the red ones are starting out red!

Mum wanted some for cooking and thought as they are small she'd better use 2

Dried mine in the tank cupboard last year, then into a tupperwear box in the food cupboard chop them as we want them. This year has been hopeless for both chillies and Toms.

How about chopping finely and then freezing ice cube trays. Very quick when you want to use them then

THats a good idea Jan. I popped some on the windowsill and they have turned red, some are shrivelling up and are still green tho'. I am going to pop some in some olive oil in a small bottle and make chilli oil.
