It may seem a bit late to talk about processing our harvest, but that is what we did today. It was time to process the hot peppers that we had curing in the pantry. To begin...we stalled the materials out. Over to the right are the very helpful plastic gloves: Here we are half way through: Once the peppers had been taken off the string, seeds removed they were placed in the little blender for "flaking". It looks like a lot, but wait until you see the blitzed hulls: A bottom of flakes about as deep as the thickness of a finger. Then it goes into the spice bottle: It is already looking hot, isn't it? Well, at various times throughout the process we would sniff and sneeze, and remind each other not to rub eyes and so forth. At one point the cups of tea began to weigh upon me and it was with great care that the dew was shaken off the begonias. Finally the finished product goes into the herb and spice drawer. It is in the lower right hand corner, second from the end (next to the Cayenne).
