I'm having trouble getting my homegrown peppers (cayanne and japaleno) to dry in my food dehydrator so that I can grind them. I know others on here do this -- any tips?

I cut the stems off before I throw them in the dehydrater and haven't had a problem with them drying. Makes it easier to grind up too!

i dry datils every year to make a hot datil shake(shake datil & roll).we use it in place of salt.cut peppers in half & put them in dehydrator.one with a fan to circulate the air works best.

I just smoke em, or not, then dry them real good in the oven. Then powder them up in the grinder. I have a convection oven that works good to dry them. I set it about 170 until they are nice and dry. Used to have a dehydrator but someone offered me good money for it during one of my garage sales. It had to go home with them. It was my wife's anyway.
I have also set them on a rack or on a cloth in the sun to dry, but I split them first.
