Drying Peppers

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Peppers did really well this year so I figured I'd try drying some.

First load of jalapenos in the smoker

After 5 hours at 200 degrees

I think I was alittle too heavy on the smoke, but still taste pretty good.
Next load, I think I'll smoke for two hour then toss in the dehydrator.

Thought I'd slice some cherry peppers in half and throw em in the dehydrator at 135 degrees

These took 24 hours!

And finally, strung up some cheyennes

acouple of small japs there too

Hopefully more will start ripening faster....got lotsa green ones yet!

Those look very good. I am a big fan of the local jalepenos around here(N, Florida) Ill stuff em with cream cheese and shredded cheese and wrap in bacon and bake. I wanna try em in the smoker. Keep up the good work

Wow Gene, you have some nice looking heat going on there, are those for your personal use or do you plan on selling/sharing them?
