    My collection of hot peppers, I dry them and make a powder that I can enjoy all winter. It also keeps me warm.

    Nice Peppers- What kind are they, and how do you dry them? A dehydrator?

    I wash the peppers, cut them in half, then dehydrate. Tried hanging them up on strings and they used to get moldy. So the dehydrator works best for me. There are many different kinds of peppers, but some of the magic marker washed off the plastic stakes, so I am uncertain of all the names. But there are Jalapeno, Hobanero, Hot Hungarian, Amazon Chili, the rest I don't know. I planted many plants, but the deer ripped some right out of the ground. I will have to find a better marking system next year. I got some of the hot pepper seeds from a guy I met on the web that collects them around the world. So some weren't named but had a number and some I never heard of. I still have seeds for next year, so I'll try and use something more durable to mark them. When the peppers are dry I grind them, makes a nice additive to Chile, pizza, gravy, and soups.
