Drying Jalapeno Seeds

In the last few years, I've dramatically increased my hot pepper consumption.

In particular, I'm a fan of jalapenos.  They're cheap, and pack a good amount of flavour along with their pleasing heat.

I just recently stumbled upon the idea (an old idea, really) of saving the seeds.

I came across THIS site, which does a great job of detailing the drying of pepper seeds, but which (in my opinion) goes a little crazy with labeling and categorizing them.  Maybe I'll get there someday - I admit it might be cool to have a bunch of different flavoured seeds at my disposal - but that day is not today.

Today, I am content to just try preserving the few seeds I got from one jalapeno, and see if it works out.

They look delicious in close-up, don't you think?  I have high hopes for them.
