I've tried both drying and freezing them, and prefer the frozen ones on the whole. The dried ones look prettyvat first but they soon lose their colour, and then you might as well just crush them up to store in a jar. Frozen ones can be used like fresh ones in cooking, and are actually easier to chop when they're still frozen. I still have some in the freezer from two years ago - just as well last year's crop was a failure.
Recently we won a raffle prize of - guess what? - a gift pack with a bottle of chilli sauce, chilli salt and ground chillis.
