Occasionally I will let things sit on the windowsill to dry out. Ok I know I' m weird but I like the way things look when they age. However, MY aging process I'm not liking. Anyhow, this jalapeno half looked very cool as it dried. Turning red at the tip and the sides turning in. Dried peppers are good to use in sauces.
The citrus I love to watch dry and even sometimes dry slices by placing them on a cooling rack and turning them often so they don't mold. They look cool in dry floral arrangements or in centerpieces.
