This year my Serrano and Habenero pepper plants went wild. 2 each of the plants gave me a huge amount of peppers.
To keep them from going to waste I put them in the dehydrator and dried the heck out of them. When that was done I seperated them and ground them up using the Ninja Prep. I have.
The result was a greenish powder about the consistency of Poultry Seasoning.
This stuff is great.
The Serrano is milder than the Habenro by a fair bit. It evens out the mild to wild variance in peppers.
Wanna give your BBQ sauce a quick bit of flash? A sprinkle of the Habo powder will do it.
Anyway this is something anybody can do and in my opinion well worth the effort.

Don't be too quick to decide. The Serrano powder is just a bit hotter than a Jalapeno and has the advantage of more taste and a controllable amount of heat. As the old time commercial had it "A little dab will do ya'"
But yes absolutely stay away from Habenero unless the digestion is cast iron.:lol:
Got a batch of "store bought" Serrano drying right now to see if they will pass muster. So far so good.

The hotter the better I always say. My neighbor gave me a bunch of Habeneros. And then, she brought me over two bottles of her habenero hot sauce. It was excellent. Next year I will have to dry some out to see how they come out.

I had a small question to ask. One that my overly smart wife asked. How do you control the powder so none gets into the lungs? I breathed in some hot chilli powder once and thought I was going to die. This should be hotter yet.

There is really not much dust during the time in the blender. But no I would not recommend having your head right over the blender. A friend of mine is doing some for himself and uses a damp kitchen towel over the blender to trap any dust.
The finished powder is very coarse in texture and not prone to flying about by just opening the jar.
