How to Dry Habaneros PDF Print E-mail

Hi Dave,

What's the best way to dry habaneros so they don't turn black?  In a dehydrator they turned beige and mushy and on a ristra they would get these black lines or turn black. We're here in the South Valley, this is our first year of growing them and had a great crop but are now losing them.
Thanks for any help,

Drew

Hello Drew:

You are not leaving them in the dehydrator long enough, but there's not much that you can do about the fading color.  While we still have some heat, cut them in half lengthwise and put them on a flat metal pan.  Cover with cheesecloth and place in the direct sun each day until they are brittle.

Dave

Thanks Dave ~ I was also concerned about the dried Orange Habanero going almost black ~ I also discovered that bringing the 2 gallon containers indoors during freezing months of winter, they will grow gigantic and start screaming "FEED ME SEYMOUR!" and producing all year (Back outside in Summer) Is 2 gallon large enough? ~ I heard about a Jamaican guy in South FL who has huge bushes several years old. ~ Also I just removed seeds from dried Cayenne. Are they ready to plant now? Miracle Grow helps all our vegetables ~ Is it fairly oragnic (or safe) No one here has died yet Thanks Dave ~

Dave, I have grown habaneros for use in my spicy habanero peanut butter fudge for my business and I would like to know the best way to preserve and use them through the winter months in NJ? Thanx
