An easy, spicy condiment

Using red peppers to spice up a dish or something like pizza is very popular, especially with my family.

It's also easy to do. I gathered and washed the peppers, put them in the food dryer and the next day I just de-stem and chop them up, .

All the chopped peppers go into a shaker jar, which can be purchased at the grocery store. Pretty, red, organic -- and it would make a great gift from your kitchen, especially in the smaller jelly jars. Use a green ribbon for Christmas.

Just so you know, the green peppers will dry fine, but they don't look as pretty as when they turn red. They turn kind of a drab olive-brown color. The red ones remain a beautiful, deep red.
