Dried v fresh.....totally different. Both can be good, and used differently....

That's actually my concern. Probably going to taste great, but the fresh pepper is going to taste a lot different than the dried version.
I don't disagree at all, so it'll be an adventure. If I had a list of all the misadventures I've had cooking stuff up, it would make War and Peace look like a pamphlet! :)

I wouldn't get caught up too much in the "preservation" and "puree" terms. This is basically a thick hot sauce. It has vinegar and basically tastes like a thick, simple hot sauce, not preserved peppers. I have had many jars of this, sent to me by the OP back in the day. I used it as hot sauce. And it's great! But don't use it to replace a single pepper as an ingredient.

Thanks, THP. The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced that it would result in something different. Not necessarily bad, but not the sauce that I know and love.... :) Good thing I have a few months before I have enough peppers to even make some of this puree.....I can come up with more ways to use it! :)

AlabamaJack's recipe is so wonderful. So basic, it can be used for every pepper. Simple preservation of peppers that can be used in many ways. Easy to make even for beginners...
Hey SL...long time....I am surprized so many people have used or are using this...and to be honest, this recipe came from one of the Aussies and I don't remember exactly who...maybe Pip...

Might have been inspired by an Aussie, but AJ set the bar and the pictorial sealed it.

I feel honored to have had so many people using this recipe and it's derivatives over the years...I apologize to all for being absent for so long....trust me...I will be around quite often from now on....I have put over 16K gaming hours on Skyrim SE, Fallout 4, and RDR2 (username popvirus2) over the past 5 years....obesessed, yes, quite...

I have spent the last 3 hours reading/re-reading this thread and am thankful SL has carried on answering questions in my absence...and thankful for THP for making this thread a sticky...thank you Dan...

However, there are reasons I cannot grow peppers and that is the past 4.5 years I take care of my 91 year old mother 50% of the time in Pensacola and simply can not tend to a garden in Texas if I am not there plus the fact I am almost 73 years old now and don't have the stamina I once had....

I still have a jar of TS puree in my refrigerator that was made 10 years ago and taste just like it did the day it was canned...

I hope I can find some kind soul to let me buy some peppers this year so I can make a couple of fresh batches...if anyone is going to have an access of any plain old 7 pot peppers or ButchT scorpions (does anyone still grow these), I will gladly pay market price or even over market price for about 5-10 pounds...

I was just reviewing some of my videos on youtube and tears actually came to my eyes thinking about how beautiful my back yard used to be with all the pepper plants everywhere you looked...wish I could grow like that again, but I am afraid that won't ever happen...

I have probably 100 jars on the shelf in my computer room that are old, old, old (most from when I started this thread) and when I get home the middle of July, I am going to open a few of them to see if any are still good....probably won't be...I can see separation in the jars (looks like water on about the top half inch)...

Anyway, just suffice it to say thank you all for the kind words over the past years...

very respectfully,

AJ

I have some jars too! Because you sent me like 10 back then lol. One of them, the contents shrank inside to where it looked like one of those old school air fresheners inside the plastic that shrinks. It had the jar shape but smaller, and I just shook it into place lol. When you open yours I'll see what I have and open as well. :cheers:

I bet you could buy some 7-pots and ButchTs from @Bold Badger Sauces and @Harry_Dangler when the time comes! Watch this section or place a Wanted ad around harvest time:
