As soon as the Bell peppers were out of the dehydrator, I popped something else in.
I am not a fan of heat in my food, but someone gave me about 8 hot peppers, some of which were jalapenos. Since I was too tired to open them and get the seeds out, I placed them whole into the dehydrator. Then, I still did not want to put rubber gloves on, so I held onto the stem and sliced one long gash the length of the pepper.
When the peppers were very dry, I stuffed them into a half-pint jar. Maybe tomorrow I will put on gloves, cut the stem off and put them into the coffee bean grinder that has never seen a coffee bean. This won't be a product I can use. Maybe I will keep it around. Maybe I will give it away.
I still have the ground pepper I made from cayenne peppers a few years ago. It is rarely used, and then it is used for food someone else will consume.
When I receive something I will not eat, cannot eat, or I am allergic to, I process it and give it away.
Do you ever make your own pepper by dehydrating and grinding hot peppers?
