How to Make Your Own Ground Red Chili Pepper Spice
Red Chiles are a popular plant to grow and harvest and a very popular pepper to eat too. It is easy to enjoy all of the different varieties of red chili peppers such as the Thai Chiles, Cayenne Peppers, Habanero Red Savina’s and many more. With all of these great peppers around, you will want to make sure that you can keep the fresh flavors all year long.
Grinding your red peppers is a great way to preserve them. Here are some simple steps to prepare your peppers, then dry them and grind them into a great spice for the best use.
First, wash and dry 6-8 fresh red chili peppers and set them aside. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Place chili peppers onto a cutting board and cut off their stems. Cut a slit down one side of each pepper and remove the seeds and membranes. If you want to keep some of the seeds, you can certainly do that.
Place your chili peppers onto a non-stick baking sheet and place them into the oven. Bake them until the skins blacken a little bit and start to look like they are roasted. Remove them from the oven and let them cool completely.
Carefully place them into a food processor and grind them up until they resemble a coarse powder. Pour the spice into clean and dry jars and seal. You can store this in a cool, dry and dark place for up to one year.
