If you can get a hold of Squrriel here she makes her own dried peppers and jellies too I think. Maybe you could pm her and she can tell you what to do with some of them. Or you could tell us where you are and maybe share some with your new SMF buddies.

Pepper jelly or chipotle powder or you own version of hot sauce.

Smoked stuffed bell peppers are good, ABT's out of the jalapenos or make some pepper jelly using about any of it.

I would can a few jars to get me through the winter. Looks like you have enough to last until next season!

All of the above and dehydrate and freeze or grind.

Dehydrate them for sure! I'm still getting batches of cayenne and jalapeno. I'm drying the cayenne and smoking the jalapeno to dry for chipotle in adobo sauce (that get's canned). Pepper jelly is a good option as well if you like that sort of thing. Whatever you do, don't let those beauties go to waste!

dried is always a good choice but you could always simmer in water, garlic and onion and then make a puree, then put into ice cube trays and freeze. then into freezer bags for when ever you need some.

If your in N FL I hope you have frost/freeze protection for the next couple nights.

I saved two of my Banana Pepper plants, but lost one and also lost my last Pablano pepper. I usually give the extras away at times. Doing up my last 4 pablano's tonight.

Smoked and dried make awesome powder! I did some cayannes that way, just sliced them in half and cut the stem off, placed in my WSM at 250° with mesquite for 3 hrs., then into a dehydrator or in my case a 150° oven untill they are completely dry. After that I just tossed them in my $2 coffee grinder/spice mill and ran them till they were powder, made the best damn chilli powder ever! About 1/4 C of finished powder for 1 lb. or so of fresh peppers.

I did the same w/ two bags of scotch bonnets. 3/4 of a pint of hell in a jar.
