Red Hot Chili Peppers


And other peppers, but I kinda like the name. Finally dried the last batch of home-grown peppers. Took 2 full days to dry these babies because I was determined to dry them whole.

Would you believe my pepper plants are full of new peppers again—including the jalapeño plants. Seems crazy with temperatures below freezing point at night.

My jar has a mix of whole-dried Madame Jeanette (They’re always yellow. If they’re not yellow, they’re not Madame Jeanette peppers), Anaheim, green & red Jalapeño and the small but fiery rawit peppers.

Normally I wouldn’t store them together, but it looks so beautiful in the jar. So autumny.


Making lots of spice, fruit and pepper mixes these days. If at any point you’d like to try one of my crazy concoctions, just let me know and I’ll see what I can do.
