Fire Powder ~ How I Make It ~ Tidbits

 You can dehydrate the last handful of hot peppers in any form, but I place them in my food processor and grind them up to small bits.

I then spread them out on parchment paper and dehydrate in my dehydrator.  If you have an air fryer, most have a dehydrate option.




When they are all dried, I put them in a coffee bean grinder (used only for grinding dehydrated items), and grind into a powder.  I store in an air tight spice jar.

Add the ground powder to any recipe to add flavor.  I use it a lot in our breakfast casseroles/frittatas and scrambles.


Yes there are Christmas towels in there😂


I fear for our world we now live in.  More and more people we know are sick with covid.  It's spreading like wild fire in our area.  A co-worker of my husband's could use prayers.  He is the same age as me, and was moved to a different hospital with covid.  Both of his lungs collapsed.  His name is Lauren (not sure if I'm spelling it correct).  We last saw him in 2020.

It got scarey in our area again. The second spike that they predicted. I know it's bad and it is a real thing , I have had several friends who have had loved ones to die from it. But I still have so many questions. I'll just keep them to myself.
The bad thing is, alot of the cases that raised ours and caused our hospital to be at full capacity, some were fully vaccinated and got covid. None of this makes any sense to me.

Tracy, I know what you mean. Nothing makes sense. I wanted to do the craft show so badly, but I don't want to end up in the hospital either. I'm focusing on the home repairs right now, and crafting for next year in any free time I have. It keeps me home and out of the store.
