We have a built-in ironing board in a house we are about to sell as we don't intend on ever going back to it to live. It has always been in the way and that might just be a solution to better utilize the space.

May I come to visit?
SO pampers his hot pepper collection and I dry what we do not use fresh; the same with some herbs not so well known.

This will be a year for replenishing our home grown and ground cayenne peppers. One other pepper I want to process from home grown is paprika peppers and some of them will be smoked before grinding.

May I ask about your process? Will you sun-dry the non-smoked peppers before grinding?

My garden isn't large scale, so I don't have any big preserving projects planned. I'll make salsa and tomato pasta sauce but not in canning quantities.

Last year at the very end of chile pepper season, I took all of my red chiles (I had a mixture of types), minced them up fine, and stored them in a jar in the refrigerator in layers of kosher salt. I got the idea from an old chowhound post that called it the "Universal Condiment." It keeps for a long time and it goes with everything (put a spoonful in scrambled eggs, salad dressing, potato salad, you name it). Somehow it tastes like more is in it than chiles and salt.

Peppers must be dry to grind into a powder form. If they need a faster than air dry the dehydrator works or even in an oven at 150 - 170. Once dry and stemmed I use a small Magic Bullet grinder for small batches. One word of caution is that some of those super hot peppers like Ghost, Carolina Reapers should be ground outdoors with a mask that will protect the lungs.... Many more exotics with subtle differences in flavor are also on my radar. I tried marinating peppers in vinegar then drying and that worked but didn't really enhance any flavors. In fact I think it might have taken away.

Hate to change the subject, but I just tried a King Arthur Lemon Squares mix yesterday, and they are very very good. If your store carries it, you should try it.

What happened to the tuna vs tunafish thread. Did it get deleted for being controversial?
