I have a recipe for spicy apricot jam, and it calls for dried Thai red chilies. I've just moved to a new city and I can't find them anywhere. And admittedly I'm not that familiar with Thai chillies so I'm not very clear how to substitute them.
Ideally I would like to swap them out for crushed red pepper, since that's whats sitting around my house at the moment..
My question is could I use that as a substitute, and if not what should I get? And how much?
