Growing Chili Peppers for Chili Powder

Credit Elspeth Hay

Two years ago, Brewster farmer Ron Backer learned about a specialty chili powder called Piment d'Espelette. He decided to grow the peppers and make the spice himself. This week on The Local Food Report, Backer takes Elspeth Hay through the process of making this French spice from pepper to powder. 

You can visit Elspeth's blog, Diary of a Locavore, to find a recipe for popcorn with Piment d'Espelette.
