    Bing go. We put a twist on it and tun it into a powder. Kinda like Paprika but much stronger.

    How do you get them ground up into a powder?
    I dehydrated some last year and tried to grind them in a small food processor, wouldn't chop into a powder.

    Thats exactly what I do with my japs too! It's definetly one of the best things I've ever pulled out of my garden. I put the powder on darn near everytyhing!
    I made hot sauce one time and once only. Way too much work for too little yield IMO but it was phenomenal!

    Coffee grinder works pretty good at powdering them up...but may make your coffee taste a bit funky.

    I have a dedicated coffee grinder only used for spices. Actually, I only have one coffee grinder - I don't drink the stuff.

    That looks great, I have tons this year. I'm going to give it a try. I just usually pickle them or make salsa. Is there a certain kind of wood that gives a better flavor.

    Hmmm. I'm sitting here thinking of what I have to trade.
    I wish dog hair, stink bugs, overgrown squash, or freeloading sons were valuable somehow.
