banana peppers - what to do with them all?

alexajord | Jul 9, 200709:22 AM     65

My banana pepper (sweet) plants are flourishing this year - I'm picking about a dozen peppers a day - pretty good for a handful of plants in my little container garden!

There's just two of us and we can't keep up! My coworkers are meat-and-potato-without-the-potato types, so it's hard to even push them off on others.

Other them putting them on a pizza, what can I do? I've tried them in a few iterations of pasta salads, and they don't work for me that way.

It breaks my heart to have such big, fresh peppers going to waste. We ultimately use about half of what I pick over the course of a week.

Any suggestions? I have a 90-minute-each-way commute - so I try to keep things simple.
