I freeze some for adding to soups as they get blitzed so it doesn't matter that they go a bit mushy when thawed. I use some frozen ones in curries. I make chilli jam with fresh chillies and which makes an excellent seasoning for soups and sauces but also a good spread for a ham sandwich or goats cheese.
This year I've also strung them up on vertical strings of sewing thread which I've hung in the kitchen window facing south and above a radiator so they'll dry. It looks very festive as there are green, yellow, red, purple and black ones.
