It has been many years since I have grown my own chili peppers to make my own chili powder. Today I planted chili pepper seeds enough for 32 plants. I also planted seeds for 8 Green chili plants.
One chili plant will make about 1 lb of chili powder. About every 10 years I grow chili peppers then I am stocked up for the next 10 years.
The food processor or kitchen blender will grind the chili into powder. It is a bit slow and the longer you grind it the more RED it gets and the more it looks like real chili powder.
It is best if you do this outside on a windy day so you can stand up wind while you pick out seeds and grind into power. I think blender does a better faster job than the food processor. I have 1 bag is chili peppers that have not been ground into powder yet so today I picked out the seeds and made chili powder.
The one on the left was ground about 5 minutes in the food processor. The one of the right was ground about 5 minutes in the kitchen blender.
I have a lot of seeds.
