Of course we had a ton of rain this year which didn't help with some plants, but other peppers had a lot more flavor to me.
If last year was your first year growing them, I'd try them one more time. Rainfall last year was epic, as you know. My garden was almost a total bust.

I use Fish as a seasoning pepper - dried and ground - and typically part of a blend, like it is in Old Bay. Some folks also pickle it and use it like a Sport pepper on the famous Chicago style hot dog.
