We take our freshly harvested peppers and process them into basically four different products. These are acidified or fermented pepper mash/puree, dehydrated peppers, brined peppers, smoked/chipotle peppers.
Pepper mash is basically fermented or acidified, for fermented mash we use fresh peppers ground with salt only and left to ferment for a period of roughly 30 days. Acidified mash is composed of ground fresh peppers blended with ph reducing agents to come up with a stable, salt free mash.
