I like my hot sauce flavorful and spicy, but I want to feel my tongue and lips when I am done eating. If this is this kind of hot sauce you are looking for you have come to the right place. This sauce is quick and easy to make, it takes all of 15 minutes to put together, sits for three days, and presto… Spicy, flavorful hot pepper sauce that you will turn to over and over again to flavor all your pure food recipes.
- Red hot peppers - A variety is best to bring out depth of flavor
- White vinegar
- Rinse hot pepper and cut of stems.
- Place peppers in blender (seeds and all) and add vinegar until peppers are submerged.
- Blend until peppers are completely pureed with no obvious chunks of peppers remaining.
- Pour carefully into large sauce pan and bring to a boil. Stirring once or twice to keep the peppers from sticking.
- Once sauce has reached boiling, remove from heat and cool slightly.
- Pour sauce into prepared jar, cover lightly with paper towel and allow to sit undisturbed for three days.
- After three days, carefully pour off any vinegar that has risen to the top of your jar (save for cooking, yum).
- Place lid on jar and store in the refrigerator.
- Sauce should last for several months. (mine never does, it is always gone way too soon).
- It is okay to mix in a few sweet peppers, it may tone down the heat of your sauce but gives more versatility when using the sauce in cooking.
- For example, in this years hot pepper sauce I used cayenne, thai, habanero and sweet hungarian paprika peppers.
- The flavor is amazing.
- As always, when working with Hot Peppers, protect your hands with rubber gloves and don't go anywhere near your eyes or nose. You can thank me later.
- Fumes when cooking on the stove can also be quite strong. I wouldn't recommend standing too close.Be sure to keep your exhaust fan going.
