Hot cha cha hot saucePosted: September 12, 2011
I have accepted the fact that this year was a tomato failure. The squirrels had a daily buffet of my garden, but they certainly left my hot peppers alone. I’ve done several hot pepper jams this year. Today I decided to try my hand at a hot sauce.
Here’s how you do it.
Cut the stems off your peppers and puree in a food processor or blender. You can make this entire sauce in the food processor. Warning: Do not touch with your hands – and for pete sakes, don’t touch your eyes! You’ll be sorry! I didn’t have any gloves so I put my hands in sandwich bags.
My pepper puree made about 3-3 1/2 cups
2 cups white vinegar
2 Tablespoons of kosher salt
2 Cloves of garlic
Dump into a sauce pan, and bring to a boil. Process cans as usual. That’s it!
My hot sauce is green – looks kind of cool.
Did you know, Tabasco sauce is fermented for 3 years before sale? I don’t have that kind of patience.
