Habanero Help!

This spring when I purchased herbs for my patio, DH accompanied me to the greenhouse and purchased a couple of little pepper plants. He babied them all summer and now we've got quite a few little golden habaneros ready for harvest.

DH works out of town, and we only have limited time together on the weekends (not much time to use them fresh in recipes), so I'm looking for suggestions to make his bounty last a little longer. Do you have a good hot sauce recipe that will keep for a while in the fridge? Can I freeze them? Are they any good dried? I checked out the Habanero Hot Sauce recipe from last month's Serious Salsa column, but one of the commenters remarked that it would probably only last a couple weeks in the fridge.

Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide!
