|Cleaned and dried red peppers|
I popped them in the oven at 150C (the lowest temperature on my oven) and cooked them for about 2 hours. If you do this, it might be good to open the windows because the fumes will make you cry. I probably left the peppers in the oven for too long or I should have flipped them around a little bit more - they were crispy but a little burnt.
I then threw them into the blender to break them down. When you do this, DO NOT open the blender and breathe in the red pepper powder! You will be in great pain, really. The final red pepper flake is really spicy but absolutely delicious. I have used them on pasta - you just need a little pinch and it will spice up your dish. Delicious!
