Drying the Peppers

Jalapeno Peppers

This year I have decided to dry virtually all of my peppers, and I’ve started with the jalapenos. I’ve strung them with embroidery thread about 1 to 1-1/2 inches apart, tying a knot at each stem. They will hang like this for several weeks in my south-facing kitchen window until they are dry and ready to be made into either powdered pepper or infused in oil.

  1. I’d love to hear about this works as well as your next steps!

    I recently seeded a jalapeno with my thumb and then, several hours later, put my contacts in. As a tip, rinsing your eye with milk helps reducing the burning.
