Ingredients Nutrition

  • as many as you have hot pepper (Cayenne, Habanaro, Thai or whatever chilies you have grown)
  • parchment paper


  1. I cut them in half or even quarters so the flesh is open and dries out faster and more even.
  2. Place them on a cookie sheet that has parchment paper on it in only one layer.
  3. I dry peppers at 200F degrees.
  4. Keep an eye on them and remove those that are dry as need be so they don`t burn.
  5. It can take 1-3 hours.
  6. You can crush them to make flakes or grind them to make a chili powder.
  7. Use a coffee grinder or food processor once they are cooled. And grind to flakes or powder.
  8. Store in a glass jar out of sunlight.
