Chutney not a bad idea.

What about a meal idea? Green pepper pasta sauce? Green pepper risotto?

Stuffed peppers for a meal?

roast them, put them in an air tight jar with olive oil and use for salads/pizza toppings/chucking into pasta

green peppers are rather horrible though aren't they?

not too bad if you roast them

stuffed peppers

green pepper and spinach quiche

Braised steak with green peppers

Salmon in vodka sauce with green peppers

Personally I would stuff em and add to a chilli!!

Meal ideas fine, but you aint going to use 19 peppers in a meal, not unless you are feeding eight pepper fanatics.
Having said that, what is surprisingly lovely is italian sausages with green peppers. Slice your peppers thickly, put oil in the pan, and fry good sausages (ideally coarse spicy italian sausages) and the green peppers together until the peppers are very soft and mushy. Tastes divine. I also like it with onions and garlic.

Chop as normal and spread evenly onto baking paper. Freeze, and decant into bags.

pickle them with some sugar in the vinegar... gorgeous as a nibble...

Ratatouille is another delicious option or give some of them away. That's what I do when I get a glut of produce and can't be bothered preserving them. Is there someone you can barter with?

Put some of them on a sunny windowsill and they will turn orange, then red (eventually). They are still good to eat even if they are a bit wrinkly. When one side turns red you can turn them round the other way.
