The Pablano or as you call it Ancho can be very tricky.
From the same plant you can get a mild pepper and later in the year get one that burns your lips off.
To me an ancho will always be a dried pablano, ancho meaning wide.
Most of the time when I buy them they are like leather or jerky and I eat them out of hand whole for a snack.
You cant go wrong with this pepper in my opinion.
Happy Fermenting.
