Kersplat went the Jalapeno Plant

As noted in previous posts it has been warmer and drier than usual this summer up here and this weather has been super-splendiferous for the peppers. Yesterday I was providing the garden with a good watering and from the deck I heard a 'craaack' and a 'splat'. Uh-ohs.

I quickly made my way through the jungle that is the garden and came upon this:

The jalapeno plant was overloaded with peppers and the water just made it heavier and it split all apart. *sadface* This is really partially my fault as I should have had it staked more efficiently. I guess I'll be making a pile of pickled jalapenos.

Anyone out there have any good ideas on what else to do with bunches of jalapenos? :)
