    Well I have been growing a few Jalapeño plants every year...For pic-ante and pico de gallo....This year has been a very productive year as far as the peppers go....So as I have mentioned before on drying Basil, I have been trying my Dehydrator out on most everything..
    So ,after BBQ ing Saturday,, I stoked up the Webber Grille a tad, added some apple wood,,,put my peppers on the grille not over the coals which were about out.Closed the vents and left them over night...
    Sunday I retrieved the peppers,,,brought them in the house and dried them to perfection using my dehydrator....Man this stuff is good..
    I can't wait to get more peppers and do more experimenting....

    for some reason I can eat jalapenos all day on nachos....but when they are in my picante sauce, I don't like the taste of them.

    When do you plant them? I bought some at Kmart when I moved in here in May I think. I don't think there is enough sun here for them. Out of the 6 plants I put in the ground I only got one pepper which didn't taste good. Any tips for success for next year?

    Go to a REAL garden center-one that grows their own plants. KMart, Lowe's, Wally World and those places truck the plants in. When plants are trucked in, they tend to not do as good.
