1. 건조 시료 : 홍고추 80kg
2. 건조방법 : 홍고추의 꼭지 부분을 짤라내고 몸통 부분만 건조
3. 건조시간 : 20시간
4. 건조 테스트 결과
- 꼭지 잘라낸 후 생고추(ⓘ) : 71kg(118.3근)
- 잘라낸 꼭지 중량 : 9kg
- 꼭지 잘라낸 고추의 건조후 중량(②) : 16.2kg(약 27근)
- 꼭지 잘라낸 후의 고추몸통 건조 수율(②÷①) : 22.8%
- '말랭기"를 통하여 고추를 건조할 경우 꼭지를 자르지 않은 생고추 원물 상태에서의 통상의 건조수율은
18.5~20% 정도의 수율을 보이는데 반해, 꼭지를 자른후 몸통만을 건조한 상태에서의 수율이 더 높게나옴
- 이러한 결과는 건조속도의 차이에서 비롯됨.
즉, 고추를 고추대에서 따면 그 순간부터 속살의 부패(과피는 단시간내 부패않음)가 진행되는 데
꼭지를 제거후 몸통만 건조시에는 우리회사 건조기(말랭기)의 근적외선이 그만큼 속살에 빨리 침투되어
건조가 빨라지게 되고 빨라지는 만큼 속살의 부패가 적게 이루어져 건조후의 중량이 많이 나가
건조수율이 높아지게 되는 것임.
Why did this grape variety remind me of zoute drop?
Well, first off, the grape is shaped like a drop and secondly, it is black. When seeing the berries for the first time it really is difficult not to be reminded of liquorice.
Liquorice aside…What is the name of the grape variety and how does it taste and feel?
It’s called Sweet Sapphire. It has a long shape, imagine the shape of a blob of honey that you allowed to fall. The length of the berries is 5 to 7 centimeters. The taste is sweet and refreshing with a full body grape flavour. When taking a bite of this unique berry the crisp skin bursts open and the firm flesh explodes in your mouth. The Brix is between 18 and 20 degrees.
How was the shape of this grape achieved?
Sweet Sapphire is 100% Vitis Vinifera species, no other species were combined to produce this variety. The shape was achieved by selective breeding, which in laymen’s terms mean that two grape varieties which showed tendencies to naturally grow longer berries were crossed. The longest berries that grew from that cross selection were crossed again and so forth. This process of selecting and crossing was done over many years until a berry that was long enough to catch the attention of the crowd was produced.
Who is the patient breeder of Sweet Sapphire?
Dr. David Cain, who is a fruit breeder from Bakersfield, California, bred this variety by patiently selecting the right (in this case the longest) grapes for many years. The final cross that delivered Sweet Sapphire happened in 2004 and the first commercial harvest was in 2013 in the United States.
We previously mentioned David in a post on Cotton Candy and being the genius he is, he will most definitely be mentioned in future posts on other grape varieties.
Which countries are commercially producing Sweet Sapphire and when are they in season?
South Africa and Australia in season January to February.
Chile in season February.
Mexico in season May to June.
Peru in season October to December.
USA and Spain in season August. Look out for Sweet Sapphire from Grapery in the USA, they sell it under the trade name, Moon Drops.
