My Book thoughts :

My hubby loves hot sauce and I planted Chili peppers in our garden this year. This book came in handy when the peppers where at there peak. I made a few of these recipes and dried the rest for later use in my dehydrator. I really liked the recipes for hot sauce divided by region. So if you are a hot sauce lover -read this book. Lisa

I am still picking a few peppers as I find on the bush.

Drying Peppers for future use:

Choose freshly harvested fruit with no insect damage or blemishes. Small chile peppers can be dried whole. Larger peppers will dehydrate quicker when cut into pieces. Use gloves when handling hot peppers, and cut them into uniform pieces.

Step 2: Place the peppers on the drying screens

Spread the peppers out on the screens and set the temperature between 125˚F and 135˚F (or per your food dehydrator’s instructions). Rotate the screens frequently and remove the peppers that are dry. The peppers are dried completely when brittle. Dehydrating time can take 4-12 hours depending on the peppers. Store the dehydrated peppers in glass jars away from direct light to preserve the color.
