A different way to store peppers
« on: September 06, 2009, 08:17:10 PM »
Thought I would post the way I store most of my peppers. 

After picking I Dehydrate them until brittle.



Then I use a old coffee grinder (Don't really drink the stuff)



Then store by jar, or vacuum seal.  This way you can add them to almost anything.

That's a nice haul of peppers! With the weird weather in WA this year, I got a pretty decent crop of them even though I was not expecting it.

I have a batch in the dehydrator now as well, but I am storing them whole in a mason jar and will grind them as I need em.

On average I am getting about a hundred a week.(Cayenne peppers)  the only thing I will do differently next year is not plant them so close next year.  Most of my bell peppers look like Jalapeno's, and can be extremely hot.
