• I have some people that would like me to make them some old fashion wieners with jalapeno peppers mixed in. I was wondering what ratio of peppers to meat to use. Also, if fresh peppers or flakes would turn out better.

    Thanks,

    enovotny I always use dehydrated flakes, it is just easier for me than cleaning the jalapenos. For those you would rehydrate them at a ratio of one part flakes to 5 parts water and then add between 3% and 6% of the weight of your product. It gives a good jalapeno flavor with a little kick of heat.

    Of course plenty of people use fresh jalapenos as well. You can do the 3-6% but I would start with trying 3% and dial it in from there.

    Let us know if you need anything else!
