#1592960 Removing seeds from placenta after dry/mostly dry

Posted by alkhall on 11 November 2018 - 07:07 PM

I always just roll the placenta around between my fingers, and the seeds just fall off.


Of course, I usually do that after they have naturally air dried over the winter.

Been meaning to tell you that you are an impressive grower of peppers.  Your Glog as been a please to follow.


Thanks, but there are many others on this forum who put my meager efforts to shame.

OK, last pick of the main raised bed, still have a lot of Ecuadoran Hot Lemon Cayenne in the mini bed to pick. Anyway, most are not ripe but have enough color to finish ripening on the windowsill.

How many pods do you consume a day? It would take me a decade to finish all of these delicious pods.


Of the super hots; none. I will take a small bite to sample the flavor and heat, but I do not eat whole fresh pods. I do use powdered dried superhots in salsa or sauces.


Of the milder varieties; it depends on what else I am having. Sometimes I slice Jalapenos into a salad or onto a pizza, or mince some Cayenne and add to chili or scrambled eggs, or eat whole Jalapenos with a burger or sandwich.

I wish I could store in jars for the quality sake but it would be so many jars it would be a down payment on a computer or something not to mention how heavy, where do you store them? Been making some flakes myself, smoked and fermented ones too. Also made an easy smoked and fermented dried paste that turned out like pepper fruit leather. Check it out!

I store my Mason jars in my basement.


I probably have about 40-50 between pint, quart and 1/2 gallon Mason jars from last year.


With this years grow, I have about four dozen pint and 12 oz. Mason jars of pepper flakes so far. I need to go buy another dozen or two today to keep going.

I've seen all these sights look all too familiar as was my season and I haven't even done final harvest! Interested to see or hear how you process your lot in which ways to bounce ideas with. I have a true boatload of reapers I gotta do something with.. Good job man!! I just reread the post and I see that's off many different plants, thought it was one plant-did you haul quite a bit more throughout the season? Sent from my XT1565 using Tapatalk



I dehydrate them, then store them in Mason jars or make flakes in my blender.


This year, I am making flakes out of all the pods.


I have a spreadsheet with counts of each variety in the raised bed I will post when I have finished.
