    Jalapeño Salt

    Think I'm going to do this.

    3 lbs fresh jalapeños
    1 cup coarse salt like Kosher Salt
    ​​​​

    Using gloves, quarter 3 lbs fresh jalapeños and remove stems.

    In a dehydrator, dehydrate the jalapeños according to your directions. I dehydrated the peppers at 145 for 15 hours. I recommend doing this outdoors because of the strong fumes.

    Check on jalapeños. They should be brittle and easy to break. Discard any fleshy soft peppers or dehydrate them until fully brittle.

    In a blender, grind peppers and 1 cup of coarse salt until the peppers are broken down.

    Store in an air tight container.

    For hotter salt keep seeds. Take out for milder.

    Go for it, sounds like a little work, but maybe worth the effort. Of course, you will fill us in when complete.

      I have done a variation of this... 100% smoked (ok 99%)

      Smoke whatever peppers @ sub 200 for 6+ hours, I usually do over night.

      Peppers that don't snap with minimal effort go in the oven with the door cracked

      Dried peppers go in coffee grinder, then mix with salt.

        As I read the OP, I was wondering if this could be done on a smoker instead of a dehydrator. Thanks for anticipating my question and answering it before I even asked.

        This looks pretty cool! Excited to see how it turns out for you.

        I have found a rub by Heath Riles that is wonderful on so many things. It is his Garlic Jalapeno rub, very good. But if you can get this I may have to give this a try.

        Bolner’s Fiesta Brand sells a Jalapeño Salt, a Jalapeño Rub, and a Jalapeño Pepper Powder. Each for about 4 bucks.

          Sounds cool, let us know how it turns out. Will be interested to know if it’s just ‘hot salt,’ or if it has more of the grassy, jalapeño flavor.

          I was in a store near Niagara Falls when I saw this and bought some, it is good, this will last me a long time. I like the idea of making my own as well. This is a blend of sea salt, cayenne pepper, chipotle pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.

            looks like some paprika, as well...

          Hi all, here's a quick update. Dyhdrated yesterday. About 8 hours. Scaled-down to 1# pepper and 1/3 cup of salt. No final product pictures just the dehydrated peppers and salt. I took the seed out to reduce heat. One thing, recipe called for using a blender. It didn't grind. Used coffee grinder I use for everything but coffee. Applied tonight on a grilled baked potato. Was conservative on applying. Certainly taste the pepper but subtle. Also used smoked paprika. Will add a bit more next time.
