This year I wanted to try growing something fun. I chose a variety of Paprika Peppers from Baker Creek and started seeds for 3 plants to try it out. When they had all turned red I seeded them and put them in the dehydrator at 125 for 24 hours.

Once completely dried, I used a coffee grinder to powder them. I got just short of 2 ounces by volume. ┬áTa-da! That’s all there is to making your own paprika powder. I think it’s super cool to be able to grow one more thing for the spice cabinet.
