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


  • Using gloves, quarter jalapeños and remove stems. If you want a mild salt, remove the seeds. If you want a very hot salt, keep the seeds.
  • 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 salt until the peppers are broken down.
  • Store in an air tight container.
