I remember a small yellow datsun truck Dad owned getting dug out one spring at the airport in Bethel. There was really high drift on it. I saw Anchorage had a snow emergency and thought to myself how is @Alasgun making do?
I have boiled dried peppers and run them through the tomato press for pepper sauce and they bring their unique flavor different from fresh. I like to mix dried peppers. I guess you can boil them separately too so the final cooled blend has more unique flavor profiles. There you have me on...
Of course they will contribute. It is often a mix that makes a more interesting flavor profile anyway. Sambal Oelek may have a classic recipe but I rock it my way with the peppers my garden gives me and no one complains.
Tell me about the scoville unit. I understand it is how much sugar water that has to be used to offset heat. What in the blue alien does that mean? What is the weight of the sugar water? The volume? How much sweet? Sugar to water ratio? Are we feeding hummingbirds with the leftovers?
