Making Paprika

A regular customer came by today and gave me a bag of hot peppers. I just cut them up and put them in the dehydrator with some of my cayenne peppers. Going to grind them up tomorrow and see what we end up with. We had some red, orange, and yellow. I omitted the green ones. We'll do something else with those...

They are hot. I'm going to grind the red ones on their own to try and get a nice colored spice. I'll post the results tomorrow night

Rock, I'm sure it will work just fine. I like paprika, just red, no heat, I grow pimento peppers, then dehydrate and grind. It's nice to have some of my herbs and spices on the shelf, that I gathered myself.

I don't think it would be too difficult to smoke the peppers first, then dehydrate, then grind. Or maybe when they make smoked paprika, they just smoke the ground/dried paprika after it's already made? I don't know.
