I grew far too many sweet peperone peppers this year - they are dripping off the plants right now - mostly red but a few still green. Does anyone have any recipe ideas? I am open to anything!

I don't like pickled peppers. In NM they freeze the peppers (chilies) and use them in dishes frozen all year. They par boil them first, peel the skin and then freeze them.

Update: I made some rancheros sauce (with a lot of my tomatoes, peperone peppers and fresh cayenne peppers).

The rest of them I am thinking to wash, dry, split, remove seeds and sliver for stirfrys.

If anyone has a good salsa recipe for canning that would be appreciated as well.

Great. After I posted I was thinking about a sauce or just the roasted peppers canned. I think sweet peppers are wonderful roasted. I can eat a sandwich of baguette with roasted red peppers out of a jar with just a little EVOO drizzled on.

I agree - roasted peppers on sandwiches (roasted eggplant as well ) - fabulous!!! I just have so many I am desperately trying to think of ways to preserve them! The rancheros sauce was great because it used up the last of my tomatoes, a lot of the peppers as well as some of my fresh cayenne peppers

I don't know if this would work. But it just popped into my head. With onions, you can slice up a bunch, throw them into a crockpot with butter, and then freezer-bag the resulting 'carmelized' onions.

Maybe this would work with peppers?

It probably would actually - when I think of frozen foods that contain peppers, they free very well and have very little taste loss!
