Anybody tried drying/grinding peppers for hot sauce?
I want to make a good shelf-stable hot sauce that will last a while. I've made a vinegar based hot garlic sauce by seeding and boiling peppers and them pureeing them. It was good, but I'd like to be able to leave the seeds in for the extra gusto.
So, I was thinking about dehydrating the peppers and then grinding them. Then, I could "rehydrate" the powder into a sauce form. Does anyone have any experience in doing it like this or recommendations?
