Thank goodness the weather stays relatively warm, a few more reapers made it! Mother nature please keep up with the warm weather
How did you make your powder? I was wanting to try it myself this year but my peppers kept spoiling before I could work with them due to a heat wave. I want to try again next summer!
I'll try that, thanks! The heat was so bad we had tomatoes exploding after 1 day, if next year is the same I'll see if drying them in the basement is better. It worked great for drying bean podsYou will need to dry your peppers before they spoil! I'd usually cut them open or in halves and put them at a very airy location (like behind a fan).
Once the peppers are dried, you can use your favorite blender to make the powder. I prefer removing all the seeds before doing that but I know some people like to grind the seeds as well.
This fruit (if it is the Carolina reaper) is so hot it stung through a thin rubber glove. I have eaten just the thin tip and it was hot enough for me. It is not only a burning sensation apart from the fruity taste, it stings really.
