    My first time growing, harvesting, roasting and drying my own peppers. [​IMG] New Mexico and Arbol peppers are ripening in small amounts which is good.

    Before roasting.


    I don't have a roaster so the New Mexicos went on the gas grill. Here they are roasted, peeled and ready to be dehydrated along with the Arbols that had a slit cut in them.


    They are in the new dehydrator that I got a couple of weeks ago. It's an American Harvester/Nesco Gardenmaster and I love it! Once they're dried I'll post a final pic.

    These look fabulous!
    Let us know how they turn out after drying. I make a red chili and use dried red chili's from the local Carncia Sonora. Requires a rehydration process and then into the blender. Tastes great, but I HATE (even in green chili) the chunks of dried skin.

    Neve thought of roasting, skinning, then drying. Definetly a good idea - thanks for sharing.

    Those look great Dawn. I have a bunch of cayenne and serrano I need to dry, I would love to roast them first but think I would need a gas mask for that.

    I was in chat last night with eman and mentioned that I had peppers to dehydrate or roast today. He suggested that I roast them first, then dehydrate them. I thought, why not? So that's why I'm doing.

    Took close to 12 hours at 135 for them to be dried, but here they all are.

    Those look awesome there dawn. Now will you just grind them up in a spice grinder or do you just crush them. But they are really looking good.

    I haven't decided what I want to do with them yet. I'm going to store them as they are, that way I have more options.
