I’m currently testing a Sansi 40-watt grow light with two wicking hydroponic systems, a kit made by Ball and one I made. This is a review of the Basil seeds sprouting in both systems. I’ll post the full video soon show how these are made, and a review of the grow light. This same method would work great for pepper seeds.

Sriracha powder recipe

You can easily approximate sriracha sauce in powder form, following this method. Adjust the ingredients to taste. This was inspired by Khang Starr’s sauce recipe.

Ingredients

  • Dried peppers, a mix of mild, medium and hot. One should a red bell pepper or similar, some habanero level and a few super hot. Estimate 5-6, mild to medium heat, 7-8 hab level, and 3-4 super hot, plus the 1 red bell.
  • 1/2 tsp -salt
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp – sugar
  • 1 Tbsp – dried garlic

Process (I get commissions for purchases made through links. This is at no cost to you and helps support my site and YouTube channel.)

  1. Combine all ingredients in a large mortar and grinding using a pestle. If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, a blender will work fine.
  2. Store in an airtight container.

Watch my video below for a demonstration and tips on storage.

This is a 10-week follow-up on the Sansi LED floodlight. It actually got two pepper plants to produce fruit in this time.
