Smoked Paprika - the next stage

Here we are folks; the "Garnet" peppers are smoked and dried. Now all that remains is to grind them into a powder. I'll be doing that at the weekend. For now, just some photos of how they look at present:










They have lost a lot of weight! They are almost papery. Once I have removed the seeds there won't be a lot left. Maybe they will produce a dessertspoonful of powder all told? As long as it's enough for one goulash or something, it will have been worth the effort...

  2. That's a good idea. You inspire me to smoke my home grown hot chilli pepper.
