Harvest a Peck of Pepper Seeds!

These are easy, but be careful with the hot varieties. The capsicum in the pepper that makes them hot can make your life miserable if you get it on your face and can even make the tips of your fingers burn.  So, when handling hot peppers and the seeds WEAR GLOVES and wash your hands very, very well.  To collect the seeds simply cut open the pepper.  Remove the seeds and carefully pull the them from the white, pithy center.  Discard the pith and use the pepper to your liking. Place the seeds on a paper towel or plate in a warm, dry place to dry out.  After at least a week of drying, put your gloves back on (the seeds will still have a hot bite), and place the seeds in an envelope of your choice.
