the making of a hot sauce

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
hey all... i started this from scratch...and finished it tonight....

started with some scotch bonnets

cleaned and stems removed...cut in half... yes i left seeds in it... i will either strain them later or liquify them when the final mash is used for hot sauce

in the blender and ready to be chopped

chopped and ready to put into the jar... danger danger Will Smith, danger danger...dont put head over blender when you open lid.. cough cough..lol

in the jar, added one tablespoon of pickling salt, shook... added one more tablespoon into top of peppers in jar after shaking,capped and boiled for 20 minutes...let it ferment

hot sauce made and bottled in approx. 4 oz jelly jars

ingredients: roasted garlic,onions,scotch bonnets,apple cider vinegar,salt,lime juice and a secret ingredient.lol

dried apricots, rehydrated in the tequila as not to add more liquid to the hotsauce
