Pepper Powder

Pepper powder is very simple to make. You first dehydrate the peppers, then crush them to the consistency that you want. For a very fine powder, using something like a smoothie maker (nutri bullet, nutri ninja, etc…). For more granular, flaky consistency, use a mortar and pestle. Powder/flakes taste better if the seeds are removed. For storing the bulk of your powder or flakes, it’s best to use a vacuum sealer. This will prevent the absorption of moisture from the air. Moisture will make the powder cake, and decrease the shelf life dramatically.
