    Hi all, a neighbor gave me a bunch of habeneros this year that I have dried (mostly)

    In the past he has given me a mix of habenero, jalapeno, serrano and whatever else grew in there. So I dried them and made a wonderful dry mix.

    But now all I have are the habeneros. They are not as strong as classic habeneros but still pack a punch.

    Other than just grinding them does anyone have any suggestions as to what to do with them?

    I could make something like a very strong pizza seasoning, chili seasoning etc. But any thoughts will be appreciated.

    Thanks /img/vbsmilies/smilies//smile.gif

    Adam, leave a few of them whole (but dried). Then just drop one into the next stew, soup, or whatever. You can better control the heat that way.
