Grow your own chilli plants and make your own chilli flakes to cook with and sprinkle on your meal.

  1. The hottest chilli that you can buy or plant. You could also mix it together with a mild chilli
  1. Pick your chilies when red.
  2. If you pick a large batch or you have a lot of chilies place them on a baking tray and dry them slowly in a low 120 degrees (248F) oven for 8 hours.
  3. When the chilies are crunchy and dry to touch they are ready, if they seem soft, cook them at 120 degrees (248F) for a while longer.
  4. If you would like to dry them outside on hot and dry days just place your red chilies on a tray outside for a week (bringing them inside overnight) turning them daily. If after a week they haven't dried enough put the tray in the oven and dry slowly at 120 degrees (248F) until they are crunchy. (Less than 8 hours as they have already started the drying process in the sun)
  5. Once chilies are dry and crunchy grind them in a clean old coffee grinder to your preferred flake size. The finer the chilli you want the more you have to grind. Alternatively pulse in a food processor until you get your desired flake size.
  1. Keep in an airtight container with a screw lid in the fridge to keep fresh for longer or store in the pantry for a year.
