A Hand Blender is a Great Tool for Garden Vegetable Purees: All These Tomatoes!
I make all kinds of tomato based purees. You can add in garlic and onions, hopefully from your garden. Have an eggplant or squash? Boil it down and puree them with your tomatoes. The hand blender is easy to clean up, easy to use and just a great tool for your kitchen and... vegetable garden!

When drying cayenne peppers (or any garden vegetable) you want to make sure you don't 'cook' them. The drying process will take 6 -12 hours depending on weather conditions, your oven, and the amount of peppers you are drying. You want to dry them with a Fahrenheit temperature no higher than 170 degrees or so.
