Storing in white vinegar has been my standard for years. I've some Thai peppers that have been that way long enough to become a family heirloom (still bright red). Have done the frozen route, too - but in the freezer they get pushed to the back and there they are.

Now the oil suggestion - an alternate option came to mind when I read that:   dry them and soak in light oil for some high-test pepper oil. My normal route is using cheap dried "pizza pepper" for chili oil. These, if at the full one million Scoville, are about 7% capsicum oil before drying and all of the pepper's lace with it - I wonder if I could just extract it from them without drying?

Yesterday, however, I put on some gloves, sliced them into smaller pieces, and put them in a jar with vinager - it's about a cup full (chopping reduces stored volume considerably). A lot of intense aroma at the first cut - borderline of harsh. This jar, with further contributions, will become a plain puree. Mixed with other stuff is one of the options if I have another burst of fruit.
