    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

    opened the first jar to taste test

    was salty when i first opened it... let it sit for awhile and mixed it around..not so salty now

    added a couple more teaspoons of apple cider vinegar and now it tastes like awesome hot sauce...

    its got a creeper hotness to it. tried a couple of drops, a little heat right away then it hits you..the burn lasts about 10 minutes in my mouth[​IMG]

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