I didn't find freezing them to be great. When it thaws, its mushy and doesnt have that pepper texture or even taste for that matter. Sure they'll still be hot but just different.

I think I'll dehydrate them and use as flakes this yr.

Sweet peppers I either freeze, or I pickle. I do sweet pickle the cherry bombs for pizza and tomato sauce.

Dear Hubby thinks I'm pepper crazy, cause I end up growing so many different kinds.

This year we will have:

bell
mini bell
sweet banana
cherry bomb (hot)
cayenne
jalapeno
ancho
fish
red peter
scotch bonnet
ghost
Carolina reaper

This is no different from the folks who keep braids of onions/garlic hanging in their kitchen. Or a fruit basket. Maybe no one you know does this, but I can assure you that people do.

Or a spare bedroom. Or a laundry room. Or the furnace/water heater closet. All that's required is air.
All the ones I've seen were hung outside.

I live in the PNW. They're hung from the ceiling in the kitchen or other room, just like onion, garlic, and lavender.
