I've no experience on this front. Have always used fresh ones. The "garden" has been good this year, but it's small, so I've been freezing throughout the season.


What's the general experience / recommendation for starting a ferment with peppers that have been frozen? Should I be adding some starter? (I see MikeUSMC recommendations it for all ferments...)


On the starter front, has anyone experienced different outcomes with different strains of starter bacteria?

From what I've read you can ferment pods that were frozen but always best to add some fresh ingredients too as this will help start the fermentation process

99% of my ferments are done with frozen pods. Shouldn't be an issue at all :cheers:
