Dried Hot Pepper Flakes

Post  zackshea on 8/1/2016, 11:56 am

Pepper flakes - Dry fresh picked jalapeno, Serrano, and cayenne peppers in dehydrator.  Dry them until they are completely dry.  You can cut them in half lengthwise to speed up process and they will dry more evenly. Then I just put a handful or two in the vitamix and pulse until they look like the red pepper flakes you see at pizza joints or that you buy at the store. The more Serrano, the spicier. 

Also, I use peppers at both the red ripened stage and the earlier green stage of the Serrano. The more dry looking striations in the pepper, the spicier so I have been told. 

I make about a quart size Mason jar that lasts all year. I give a lot away and people always ask for more. Great on eggs, pizza, pasta, and recipes that call for red pepper flakes. Very good in dill pickle recipes for a spicier pickle.

Zack, Silly question here, but do you also include the seeds? For my various hot pepper powders, I leave in the seeds, but for flakes they would not be pulverized.

The more seeds you leave in, the spicier.  I leave them all!
