Yellow pepper paprika

I found some long yellow peppers on the discount rack* at the nearby grocery store and figured it might be interesting to see what they tasted like dried. They were long yellow peppers, relatively sweet to the taste.

I cut them in half, took out the seeds, then laid them on a few sheets of our dehydrator trays. It took about 12 hours of drying at the 135F setting to fully dry.

After that, I broke them up into smaller pieces to fit into our mortar and I crushed them just enough to easily store in a mason jar. I plan to crush these into finer dust or crumbs before use. The smell is sweet and much stronger than store-bought red paprika. I haven’t tasted it yet.
