Dried Foods: Peppers


Thursday 20 November, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Peppers are one crop which I know I can grow really well from early summer (May) right through until the back end of November, weather permitting. Now, following on from aubergines, or eggplants, another vegetable that we dry for use ‘out of season’ are, of course, peppers of all kinds.

Now, you’ve already seen how we freeze our peppers, either chopped or cooked whole in an earlier post. However, drying them is also quite a normal method of preservation here too.

These small red peppers are great for crisp shallow frying and served immediately with yoghurt and olive oil. One of my favourites…






And large red peppers too. We have these things hanging all over the place!




The same as when we cut peppers into chunks for freezing down, you can also throw them straight onto a big metal tray and park them in the sun for 5 days. We have a great bowl full of dried pepper chunks this year from doing just that!




And finally, hot chilli peppers all dried and mashed up. I remember almost passing out with the fumes when I did this batch 🙂
