We were given these yesterday. At a guess they will last us 10 years.

Seed, toast and grind them and I'll bet the fresh powder won't last 10 years!:D

I'm not convinced that the seeds add to the heat and if they are finely ground I cannot see that the seeds affect the texture or the colour?

Yes the seeds and membrane add to the heat.Since the seeds are are generally a shade of white, they make the powder a lighter color, IMO.

I'm going to give grinding a go. It's apparent that some of the peppers have attracted mold so I'll separate the decent ones and grind them up. Once I fill a jar, I'll bin the rest. (I have a large jar of dried Thai hot peppers already which I'm guessing are at least twice the heat of the cayennes).

I tasted a little this morning. It tastes a little smokey and the hit is delayed by a few seconds but there is definitely a spicy hit. I shall try some in my "hot and sour potatoes" this afternoon.
