I am unfamiliar with super hot peppers and not sure how many to use in a salsa recipe?

We've taken our standard salsa recipe that was mild enough for everyone and simply added one superhot pepper per pint of salsa to make a hot salsa that most people can eat (there was definitely a hot afterburn taste but not bad).

You can get as adventurous as you want with more peppers and it may take some trial and error to perfect your desired heat levels.

How to store peppers?

As a rule of thumb, peppers are best consumed or processed when they are freshest so if possible process them when you receive them.  They should be kept in a refrigerator if they need to be stored for more than a day considering they spent a couple of days shipping.  If they are kept in a refrigerator, do not use plastic freezer bags as moisture can get trapped in the bag and cause mildew.  The peppers should be fine in the refrigerator for 1 week.  To store for longer than a week they can be frozen.  Please search the internet for pepper freezing methods.
