I picked up a container of Thai chiles at the grocery. There are probably 30-35 chiles in there. I am planning on making two Thai recipes in the near future and will probably use 8 chiles total. How long should I expect the rest to last? Also, they were in a plastic tub in the chilled section of the produce. Should I keep them in the fridge? I always thought chiles should be stored at room temperature. Any easy ideas for the leftovers before they go bad? Pickle them? Dry them?
