Hereâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s a â€œrecipeâ€ I stumbled on a few years ago purely by accident. I was trying to dry some fresh Tabascoâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s and habaneroâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]s and my dehydrator was on the fritz. I figured Iâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]d poke holes in the peppers and lay them on a bed of kosher salt. My thinking was that the salt would sort of let them breath while they slowly dried. Might also function as an antibacterial of sorts too. Anyway, it dawned on meâ€¦smoke them! I put the whole pan into the smoker and smoked away. The end result was a tremendous success! The peppers had not only become deliciously smoky but the salt had a very nice heat and smoked flavor as well. Now smoked kosher salt is a staple! Does anyone else smoke salt? What about other common spices?
