How To Dehydrate Jalapeno Peppers

------------------------ Sponsored Ads -----------------------

For some odd reason, lately I have been feeling like I have been neglecting my food dehydrator. It’s probably because I don’t use it as much these days. We have looked at dehydrating sweet peppers and dehydrating cherries in previous blog posts. Have you ever tried dehydrating jalapeno peppers?

If you are already familiar with the dehydrating process, you know how simple it is. It is more a game of patience, as you wait for your food or vegetables to dry out. It’s worth the wait though, as dehydrated food retains most of its original nutrients. Dehydrated produce takes up so little space, I should really be doing more of it to maximize on storage space.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • jalapeno peppers
  • cutting board
  • knife
  • strainer
  • gloves
  • food dehydrator
  • mason jar

Wash and rinse your peppers, before cutting them in half lengthwise on your cutting board. The stem must be removed, the seeds and pith are optional though. When ready bring out the trays from your dehydrator and carefully lay your peppers on the trays.

When you have loaded all your peppers, you can turn on your dehydrator and use the fruit and vegetables setting. Process at 135 to 145 degrees F for up to 12 hours. You will know your peppers are ready when they are crunchy and hard. Store in an air tight container, a mason jar should be just fine.
