Garden Hot Sauce





Introduction: Garden Hot Sauce

I love to make hot sauce during the summer and try to utilize items that I grew that year.

Last summer I grew heirloom tomatoes, garlic, onion, and Thai peppers.

My warning is to find out how hot your peppers are prior to creating something with them!

Ingredient list:

  1. 1 pint of white vinegar
  2. 1/2 cup of water
  3. 1 t of sea salt
  4. Approx. 10 peppers
  5. 1 clove of garlic
  6. 1 small onion
  7. 1 1/2 cup of tomatoes

Step 1: Cooking the Sauce

After removing the inedible parts of the veggies and washing them off I add them to a pan with vinegar.

Approx. 1 pint + 1/2 cup of water, touch (1t) of sea salt

I let them simmer for about an hour then let cool.

Once it if safely cool, add to a blender or food processor and turn it into Hot Sauce !

Step 2: Bottle the Love

Well you gotta put you hot sauce someplace, right?

I chose a freshly-used whiskey bottle to store the sauce in, my thoughts that it might lend its oak and whiskey flavors, might have but mostly it looked good!
