I can personally tell you that we are NOT allowed to dry herbs or peppers
for any use.  I make my own hot pepper seasoning and I can not sell it...and
I also dry herbs but I can not sell them either with out have a "processing"
license.  It's really bogus...

>No I don't and I should. I also grow and dry various culinary herbs and
cayenne peppers but have yet to make blends with those. And since I'm in
Ohio such things go under "cottage industry" regs.

Lucy - Our local health dept. quoted the following regs and was adamant that

I cannot dry my herbs and blend them under cottage industry laws here in 
Ohio. I have not pursued it further to see if an inspected kitchen is OK, or

if I need a commercial kitchen. PLEASE let me know if you find out 
otherwise!
