A surfeit of jalapenos. What to do!?

GarlicandGinger | Aug 8, 200712:49 PM     33

Hello, folks.

My summer garden is cranking out jalapenos like they're going out of style, and I want to make sure that I use them up instead of watching them slowly rot on my kitchen counter. So, if you could help me sort out the following that would be much appreciated:

1.) How best to store hot peppers? (I've heard the freezer, but any other suggestions?)
2.) Basic recipes where they'll add a nice zingy flavor (I'm thinking pastas, ethnic cuisines, etc.)
3.) Recipes where jalapenos can really shine, such as salsas
4.) Unusual ways to use jalapenos, such as jellies, etc.

If you have any suggestions for the above I would be grateful. I love these damn things and want to make sure I get maximal use out of them.
