Here's an alternate heat source for these cold wintry days. As seen on my Facebook page this morning:
Steven J Heimel My sister and brother in law in Pennsylvania grow various peppers in their high tunnel and dry them, flake them, put them in a milk carton and use sparingly on food. I liked it so much they put some in a jar for me and it's been a welcome sprinkle here and there. Such a common thing, like you see in pizza shops, but like garlic salt so much better in some indefinable way when it is homemade.
|Pepper assortment makes the best hot pepper flakes!|
For a couple of years now, we've been dehydrating an assortment of hot peppers and then chopping them up in a food processor and storing them. Brother Steve and wife Johanna were recipients of them when they visited from Alaska last fall.
The beauty of these peppers is that you never know just how much heat you're sprinkling on your food. I've learned that, for my tastes, a little sprinkle goes a long way. Arthur, on the other hand, is much more heavy handed.
While we cannot sell processed foods, if you'd like to give them a try, I've been known to share!
Great heat source on these good
