I had a few late pods so i wanted to try something a little different. Ive used Aleppos with a few others such as Antep Aci Dolma and even milder bells. Flavor is really good BTW.
I wrapping one up later today. Its about 60% aji panca and 40% farmers market. i dried both from this batch with seeds to try and keep as much of the peppers as possible. Snapped them apart after nearly finished and removed most of the seeds. I just tossed the dried chunks back in the dehydrator for a couple more hours. A few pieces didnt seem dry enough to me.
Occasionally i like to add Kirkland no salt seasoning blend to powder blends. Maybe around15%-20%. It adds a bit of flavor with dominating anything. I usually grind my peppers first in a small blade coffee grinder then use the Kirkland to help remove the stuff that gets stuck in the grinder. Mix it all together afterwards. Dehydrated onion flakes work well for this too if you want to keep the flavor more simple.
ATM im trying to find a deal on a German manual coffee grinder by Zassenhuas. These look like they might work for grinding small chunks without creating as much fine powder. These pop up on auction sites and even GoodWill from time to time.
