How Long Will Thai Peppers Last in Fish Sauce

Starving_Sound | Dec 1, 2012 06:43 PM

I foolishly bought a bunch of Thai peppers from the Thai supermarket because I hardly go to that side of town and I love them to death. But there is no way that I'm going to use them all. I know freezing peppers will make them turn soft, that the fridge will only keep them so long, and that I can dry them and crush them into an awesome powder. Or that I can soak them in vinegar or alcohol to preserve them as well. I'm looking to do some or most of these but one thing that I love the most to do with peppers is when you chop them up and place them in fish sauce. That stuff is too good and it's great for dipping and in soups. I was wondering how long do you think it would keep. Since it's in something salt base will it preserve them longer like vinegar? Even if not for as long. Does anybody know? Thank you.

Any other ideas on what to do with fresh Thai peppers would be awesome as well.
