Judy and I are teaming up to experiment with Fresh and Dried peppers. I decided to take the route of fermentation as it gives the dry peppers time to rehydrate, I am aiming for similar/exact same tasting, consistency, and heat. Here is the fresh side.

 

Roughly 1/2 lb Primo 7 pots

chops down to ~3 cups

added 6 pineapple rings with some pineapple juice:

Purees even further down to ~2.5 cups after you get all the Air out

6% of weight of salt is roughly 1.5 TBsp

airlocked and some water added ready to go into my "incubation chamber" @ 84 degrees F

Looks like an interesting experiment. I'll be keen to see how both develop :)

I'll be keeping an eye on this as well. I started a mash made from dried peppers a few days ago. I am hoping it turns out ok because I honestly don't know much about it..

Very cool. Have wondered about exactly this myself; following

alright! we got the dried one prepped now. 

 

started with 2 cups of dried primo 7's from judy <3 

 

hWyv9Uy.jpg

 

 

added 1 cup of boiling water and cover for 20 mins

fully rehydrated

muy picante salsa? we shall see. the rest of the process is exactly the same as above. interestingly this is WAY darker than the fresh pods (on the left).

If youre wondering, this is how my fermentation incubator is setup (not actually my picture), just two 60qt totes inside eachother and one has 4 inches of water in it with a 5-10 gallon aquarium heater. like so

I was thinking the same thing, but otherwise they look the same. This is gonna be an interesting outcome to see :)

What i found is that 

Dry pods have more heat, darker color, and stronger smell.

which should make them more favorable for hotsauce makers.

you need less amount to get the same results in the Dry Vs Fresh hotsuace making 

I think the dry will turn more flavorful than the fresh.

We will see what others think of this experiment.

Many thanks to pex for taking the time to share this experiment with us.
