Making Dried Spicy Pepper Flakes

Dried Spicy Pepper Flakes, with fresh Lemon Drop Aiji Pepper from my gardens!

I cook a lot of healthy, homemade meals for my family. AND I grow a lot of the ingredients including my spices and vegetables. Follow along as I show you in this short video, how I make spicy Dried Spicy Pepper Flakes, from my garden! My gardens are in New England, zone 6b/7a.

Please let me know in the comments, what do you make with your garden fresh peppers?! My gardens are in New England, zone 6b/7a.

For years, I have avoided ANYTHING spicy. I do not enjoy it, and it really does NOT sit well with me. However, both my girls enjoy spicier food, so, I am branching out in what I grow. I am also saving and storing some of the spicy peppers: Dried Pepper flakes, Pickled Spicy Pepper, who knows? I may even add something even HOTTER for next year's garden.

Please let me know in the comments, what else do you do with your garden grown peppers?

Most of you know, I prefer to grow my own food, locally. It's healthier for my family, and for the planet. I know what goes into my foods, and what chemicals are NOT in my food. Also, It cuts down on carbon emissions, less trucking, planes, trains, and boats, to get fresh foods to my table.

And that makes me smile... better for the planet, better for my own family.

Hey @bluefinstudios, here is a little bit of BEER from @pixresteemer for you. Enjoy it!

It is wonderful when you can plant and harvest food items. I am yet to plant peppers as I am in zone 7-8. I will try however. I do not eat very spicy food but a bit creates an nice flavour.
Will the pepper remain dry for a long time in a ziplock bag?

I am in zone 7 as well, in Eastern US.
This is my first year making my own dried pepper. I have no idea how long it will last, but I do know, my daughters cook with it a lot, so I suspect it will get used much faster than I think

Making salsa today. Tomatoes, garlic, onions, jalapenos and bell pepper plus some hotter peppers from the store - Habanero, thai chili peppers, and seranos.

Can't wait... let me know how it turns out?

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 172 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!
