The only supplies I used was a Nesco Dehydrator, and a Magic Bullet blender. If you don't have a Bullet, you can always use a hand grinder or any other type of food processor that would help with grinding. Or if you must, just crumble by hand.
Last night, I took two large bags of frozen Bell Peppers mixed with onions and dried them overnight in the dehydrator.
The next morning - I couldn't believe how delicious the dried peppers were - so packed with flavor!
Adding half a cup of dried peppers to the bullet, I also added two pinches of cayenne pepper and blended. Took less than 5 seconds. (I added salt and pepper to the food separately, but it could be added here too.)
Grind to the consistency that you like. I like to see a little bit of shape and color in mine.
I am really excited at how dehydrating has given me so many new options on enhancing my food storage. EVEN BETTER, I'm thrilled that I have found an alternative to spicing up food without adding unnatural preservatives. No more MSG and other harmful ingredients.
I'll be blogging a lot on how dehydrating has become one of my favorite ways to preserve food, not to mention how dehydrating is cost effective and a time saver!
