Homemade Dried Chillies
Yes you can buy a jar full of the little fiery crackers, usually a little dull in colour but stop Wait ! When a recipe calls for fresh chilli what do you usually do ? Pop to the local supermarket and get a packet of 3/4 chillies. The question is what do you do with the ones you don’t use straight away. Leave them somewhere until they go soggy then throw them away. All you have to do is hang them somewhere in the kitchen to ensure they have plenty of airflow around them. Just leave them hanging and eventually they will dry out, preserving them for future use. I just grab mine shave a few pieces off for curries, Chinese dishes, anything that needs a little kick.
