Drying peppers for peperoni cruschi (crunchy peppers)

Some may like it hot, but these are not. Bunches of them hanging at Al Balcone delle Dolomiti b&b here in Castelmezzano (Basilicata). Use them in pasta dishes, on cooked vegetables, as a garnish, or just plain snacking. Also great crumbled over melted caciocavallo cheese on toasted slices of local bread.
