Hey how did you go about chilli powdering. I have many dried of the high level stuff but when blending them its like spraying mace through your house. I suffered seriously when I've tried so I keep them whole now.
I've looked for grinders but no luck other than Mortal and Pestle.
Arr yes, drying and grinding 1 million + scoville chillies.. Not for the faint hearted indeed. I have a food dehydrator. Cut all in half first, helps cutting time down and dries better.
Once dry, nice and crispy, I crack out the magic bullet. I use both blades. The 4 blades first to do the majour chopping, then transfer it to the smallest glass and use the grinding blade. Only 1/4 fill the small plastic glass container with the grinding blade and let it go for a minute. Super fine powder.
Now, I do this in my garage , AIR FLOW, by the open roller door with the internal garage door to the house locked. If I don't lock the door and someone comes out, it's almost instant death for them. I'm not joking. I don't wear masks or gloves or anything now. I'm almost used to it. Yes I sneeze and cough a lot during the grinding ( I grind a lot), and sometimes if its windy my hands and forearms burn for hours all night afterwards but I kinda like that now. There is one golden rule, if you need to piss, sit down and go hands free. I've been known to sit in the pool for some time after grinding super hots and forgetting the hands free policy.
Ive tried masks but it just does not help, it gets in. The key for me is to wait a minute to let the grind settle in the grinding cups, open and transfer gently between grinding blades, containers etc. I also do all the cleaning up, even washing the magic bullet cups and blades are carefully and slowly done. Open that water tap to fast and shoot water into that cup/blade... nuclear in the kitchen.
I don't know where you are but I can grind for you in you are in the gold coast. Does not take long and I have found even dried chilli can suck up moisture and start to go soft again in our humidity. Powder does not and keeps ages.
