Hot Chili Peppers

23 Jun

Growing hot peppers this season?  Here are some things you can do to enjoy them all winter long.

DRY the chiles in the open air by laying the chiles on a cookie rack. Place the rack with the chiliies in a cool dry area. Once chiles are dry store them in a sealed jar. You can also string them up to air dry which is great for decoration and display.

CRUSH dried chiles by placing them in a food processor until the peppers are ground into coarse flakes.  Transfer the crushed pepper flakes  to a spice jar, which can be stored in your spice cabinet.  Use the flakes to sprinkle on pizza, pasta and others dishes that you want to spice up a bit.
