Hot peppers--fresh vs. dried

Lindy74 | Mar 10, 2007 04:00 PM

This is not so much a question about which is better but a question about how they compare heat-wise. If a recipe calls for fresh hot peppers and I'm using dried, do I need to adjust the amount? Does the heat of a pepper change when it is dried?
