Does your grocery store have a Mexican section, Pac? Ours has lots of different dried hot peppers. Another thought, pizza places have those little packets of pepper flakes. I have quite a collection

Thanks for the suggestion, Dawg.
Maybe I can pick up a couple of those cool glass shakers with the big holes in the lid, too

I have a bunch of those. I picked them up at thrift stores. I use one for flour (when I need to "dust s/thing" with flour), two for two different kinds of hot peppers, and another one is currently empty...maybe I should put kosher salt in it...

I just looked at my 5 year pepper shaker, it had a place to write the date opened. I'd written 9/23/07! ohmy!

I have a matching one with a different top for sugar. Picture the sugar dispenser in a diner.
