What to do with lots of peppers

jono37 | Oct 21, 200810:16 PM

I have a pepper plant which has exploded with growth and needs to be harvested. I don't know the name of the pepper variety, but they are about 5-6 inches long, about one inch thick, they taper to a slender point, and they are moderately hot. I think they may be Italian frying peppers.

Anyway, I have about 15-20 growing, and they need to be harvested because they are turning dark in color. My wife doesn't love spicy food. Are there any ideas on how to store these? I once pickled a few, but couldn't come up with a good way to use those. Could I chop them in a cuisinart with oil to make a paste which I can add to stews or chilis later? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
