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!
- 1 pint of white vinegar
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1 t of sea salt
- Approx. 10 peppers
- 1 clove of garlic
- 1 small onion
- 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,..it might have but mostly it looked good!
