Home made hot pepper powder

5 1-gallon Ziplocks of hot peppers (jalapenos, habaneros, and Hungarian Hot Wax) from the garden (rough chopped and frozen) went into the dehydrator on Monday.  

Overnight between Wednesday and Thursday the eye-watering scent from the dehydrator (which is in the garage for a reason) abruptly cut itself down to less than 1/4 of what it had been.  A check of the peppers showed them to be nice and crisp.  

The dehydrated pepper pieces fit into a single gallon ziplock.

A run through the food processor and we have hot pepper powder for seasoning.  And my sinuses are clearer than they’ve been in weeks…..

Its a fairly roughly chopped “powder”, but that was about all my sinuses would take…..

    Very nice! I got exactly zero peppers from my garden this year. Oh well, probably for the best as I didn’t have a lot of time to devote to canning or drying.

    I can sympathize with your nasal passages though.
