Wow, how neat! :) I LOVE red pepper flakes and them to pretty much everything. I might plant pepper plants next summer just so I can give this a shot! Thanks for sharing!
No WAY! I love that! I also add red pepper flakes to almost everything, and I have a ton of dehydrated cayenne peppers from the garden in the freezer. I'm so doing this!
That's so neat! What a great idea! I'm sad now I didn't plant any red peppers, just green ones!
HOW COOL IS THIS?!
Lovely. Be they in flakes or whole. Thanks.
I did this a few years ago, although I was trying to make ground cayenne pepper, which my brothers love, as Christmas gifts. I hung mine to dry in a cool dark closet. I was not as smart as you and used a mortar and pestle. It was horrible! The cayenne pepper "dust" from squashing the peppers floated up and got in my eyes. At one point, my husband almost had to take me to the emergency room! But I kept going because, darn it, I was going to make that ground pepper! I ended up making a small amount for each brother and telling them they better be happy with that amount because I almost went blind. :-) Should have used a spice grinder!
Best news ever for me! Living in Argentina the crushed red pepper flake available here have no heat!! My folks sent me some pepper seeds to plant! This will be the first thing I do with them! thank you:)
Love it, but 9 hours!!! I guess it's all worth it!
This is so cool - crushed red pepper flakes are a favorite spice in our home. We use them on pizza so fervently it should be a crime. I am so proud of you for taking on this really cool recipe!
No way! How awesome. Jessica you rock, what an awesome idea. If Tony and I end up moving I *might* plant a garden next year. :)
