In Topic: How does hot sauce compare to real pepper on the scoville scale?

other thing that Affect the pungency..


If You cook (bring heat)  or Ferment you will also affect the final heat level.

some chemical reaction occurs


i would say... the only things that compare to a fresh is a RAW mashed fresh pepper.

second would be a fermented mashed puree

third would be a Cooked mash puree

And afterward would be the blended ingredient in it / ratio of pepper to other ingredients.

if you find "gorria"    it's the same pepper.


have some of those coming from espelette region in france and grew then in canada.   they are bigger and better each year (i reuse my seeds) to have some plants that are more and more tuned to my northern climatic condition :)



very good pepper!  hope it wont go too appreciated cause they will all lose the high value for teh espelette farmers.


and be carefull the "espellette" is a protected denomination.   so you can use "type espelette" or gorria without too much fear of lawsuits
