squirrels attack chiles//what to do with green habaneros?

pitu | Aug 1, 2005 01:59 PM

I am a first time grower of habanero peppers. The little plant in a pot went wild - it's loaded with peppers. The excitement is mounting at my house . . . but the damn squirrels keep knocking the fullsize but still green peppers off! Can I pickle them or use them in any way? I wouldn't normally make such a big deal about unripe fruits/veg, but I am an urban gardener and the peppers are tantalizing!

I'm trying to get a taste test from my significant other (possessor of cast iron taste buds) but perhaps one of you has information that could spare her . . . ?
