I know Walking Dude makes his own Chili Powder, and yes I need to do a search on that. Last year I grew some Japs, let them turn red, dried and ground them. Now that is is a good hot and somewhat sweet ( nice pepper flavor) Powder. I need to learn how to blend different peppers and ingredients to create something great. I use alot of paprika, Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder and Cumin. Now Paprika is probably from either the hungarian hot and/or sweet peppers. Chili Powder is most likley chili peppers. I don't think Cumin grows around here to harvest seeds or not. When any of you make make Chili Powder do you dehydrate your own garlic and onions ( or smoke then dehydrate).? I have alot of room in the garden.
