Fall is here and it's time to dry peppers. I picked several varieties from my garden; some red and some green and prepared them for drying. These will make dried pepper flakes for use in soups and other dishes.

These are dried cayenne peppers that I dried last week.They are now ready to grind to make cayenne pepper.

Last month I pickled my
"Big Bomb" peppers. They are about the size of a golf ball, very meaty and ripen early. These are kept in a gallon jar in the refrigerator. They are moderately hot and delicious!
