A single well-grown chilli plant produces dozens of fruit, so if you grow several varieties, you'll easily have enough to preserve. Use a needle and thread to create a chili garland to hang to dry, freeze peppers in small resealable plastic bags, or make this two-for-the-price-of-one recipe for pickled peppers and sweet chilli sauce. Jalapenos or serrano peppers work well because they are larger, but any type of pepper can be used. Jalapenos can be pickled when green or red. Always wear plastic or rubber gloves when cutting chillies.

This is the recipe I use to trick my children into thinking they're sloshing an iconic Kiwi brand of tomato sauce on their sausages. The secret ingredient is glacial acetic acid; you can source this from pharmacies. Acetic acid is pure concentrated vinegar and it preserves the flavour and colour of sauces (and chutneys) while also speeding up the cooking time, as you don't have to boil off the excess liquid in vinegar.
