Drying our Hot Red Chiles

Here in the seed house we’re drying our hot peppers for sale this fall and winter. These are Matt with hot red chilesBolivian Extra Hots. They have a little less heat than a Jabineros but because they are vine ripened and very red- they’re sweet. These will crush into beautiful red chile for making a great red curry.

New for this winter we’re going to have 3 varieties of hot red peppers at the Farmers’ Market. In addition to the Bolivian Extra Hots we’ll have our Alcalde Improved red chile. We’ll also be drying our Italian Red peppers to create a chile powder that will be similar to paprika. You will be able to create a sweet/hot marinade by mixing these varieties.
