    Something completely different! You could grind them up to make some madly hot chilli powder??!! Or if they're from ripe chillis, save the seeds and grow them next year? We did ours with seeds still in as OH has a mouth like asbestos... I won't be eating them though!

    The salt is to draw moisture out of the chillis, so that once they're in the vinegar the juices don't dilute the acidity of the vinegar to below 'keeping' levels. Same as with pickled onions

    this looks good too:

    Pickled Chillis

    1 lb mixed hot, mild and sweet peppers
    3 tbls sea salt
    6 garlic cloves
    handful of coriander
    about 1/2 pint of cider vinegar
    3 tbls olive oil

    Place peppers into a glass bowl and cover with the salt turning occasionally for about 2 hours. Heat oil in large pan and throw in the roughly chopped garlic until it sizzles and peppers and coriander for about 2 minutes, do not let peppers soften. Turn into sterilized jars and cover with boiling cider vinegar, leaving slight gap at top. Seal jars and place into boiling water for 15 minutes, remove jars, cool and label and keep for at least 2 weeks before trying.
