I was hoping that someone could help me with a question I have. I have a large quantity of red and green jalapenos that we just harvested yesterday. I would like to make chipotles with them, but have come across some conflicting methods. I was just wondering if anyone has done this before, and if so are you cold smoking/dehyrdating them? or are you just running them in a smoker (if so, at what temperature)
I was also wondering if there is a difference in smoking green versus red peppers .. and if there is, is it possible to ripen a picked green to red? I have seen layered on newspaper, or in a paper bag, but have never tried it. I am hoping that with the wealth of knowledge amongst the members here, someone either has done it before .. or can point me to a thread that might answer some questions I have.
Thanks in advance everyone!
