TIPS - Red Pepper Flakes
When called for, take one or more of the peppers and cut carefully into about three pieces across the grain. Them take the pieces and shake out the seeds. Now you have the pepper - just hold it in your fingers and crush it. Voila red pepper flakes.
I know there are those who swear by the “whole” thing, but I just don’t like the texture of the seeds in an otherwise delicate dish.
When your done with them, seal the package and put it in the freezer for the next time. Why you ask, well in the really hot weather, you might find an infestation in the package. An ounce of prevention goes a long way .....Morg
