Trinigourmet Q&A #12: Can frozen peppers be used to make pepper sauce?
Posted Oct 13 2010 9:29pm
Reader’s Question: Have you ever used peppers (for Trinidad Pepper Sauce) that you had previously frozen? I have a bunch of peppers from last season that I steamed, ice bathed, and then shrink wrapped & froze. Looking for a good use for them. Plus, 2 1/2 pounds is a lot of peppers to gather when you only have one plant! Thanks!
Hi there! After rereading my father’s recipe for Trinidad Pepper Sauce I see no reasons why steamed and frozen peppers can not be used. If it was a recipe where the peppers needed to retain their form it may have been a problem but as they are pureed I say go right ahead! The only diffference I think you will experience is a reduction in the heat profile. Let me know how it turns out. Best Wishes!
If you have other suggestions for our reader why not leave them in the comments? Thanks!
