Yuko was growing Poblano peppers for a while (as evidenced here), and she decided she wanted to dry some of them out. She and John tried to speed up the process by putting them in the toaster oven - baaad news. We coughed uncontrollably for a few hours, try as we might to air out the apartment. It was pretty funny. 

You'll see an unfamiliar face - that's Mark, who visited us for a St. Patrick's day feast yesterday! We all hung out, watched Conrad play RE5, ate a dinner cooked by Yuko and John, and played some Left 4 Dead together ... it was good times. Did YOU do anything special? Drinking counts. 

By the way, Yuko's computer is still gone! She'll have it back within a week, but until then she'll be relatively quiet in her usual haunts. 

EDIT: I looked at the comic again and realized my favorite part is John's why god face in the last panel. 


Ah.. but...

...imagine wiping it into your eyes.

I'd rather settle for an open wound than in the ol' occulars...

the Mark guy's face kills me

the Mark guy's face kills me the most in the last panel. He looked like he just stepped in a pile of crap with a nail hidden inside of it.

not too far from the truth

I actually did step on a nail once as a child. My face probably wasn't far off from what you see in the comic.

drying em out

If you have an oven with the grill above the oven but below the hobs like this:

You can turn the oven on but then put the peppers in the grill bit. It gets very and dry in there without the danger of burning said peppers.

I do it to warm plates before serving dinner when doing a sunday lunch for the family :P

heating peppers

If you heat them up you kill the seed anyways, That means you wont make baby pepper plants later on, because you cooked it to death.

The best way to dry pepper is to thread it by the stem (with needle and thread) and then hand it in a sunny window...

Good afternoon. In all recorded history there has not been one economist who has had to worry about where the next meal would come from. Help me! Need information about: Alavert. I found only this - Alavert cause. Brief and straightforward guide - what is synthroid? Generic synthroid levothyroxine at affordable price. :-( Thanks in advance. Aretha from Ghana.

My dad did this with about 20 halved habanero peppers that had been in a food dehydrator for over a week and refused to dry in the slightest. He (+ whole family & pets) learned the hard way that it wasn't water keeping them soggy. @_@ owwwww.....

I'm mexican, and my mom

I'm mexican, and my mom actually does this before making hot sauce. It makes it tastier, but this happens almost all the times. The term is "torear" peppers, as in making them angry, I guess.
