There are several different ways to dry chiles, employing both traditional methods and new technologies.

THANKS to all the cyber pepper freaks for visiting the cool website that is still under development.  
 
This will be one pepper munching, lip burning site that will keep you smoking. Recipes, sauces, gardening tips, editorials, even a chat room for burning conversation, and YES there is the GARDEN TOAD editorial. Maybe, just maybe, we will sell some chiliheads merchandise, you know the basic items, (koozies, t-shirts, hats, do-rags, bumper stickers).  
 
As I was in my garden several days ago picking peppers (serrano, habanero, bullhorn) thinking about what in the world I would be writing this greeting about, a thought came over me as I was picking some ripe rooster spurs, that pepper lovers would be visiting this site from all over the world.
