    Cheech,here is one I tried this year and the flavor was great.I didnt make it too hot but you can adjust that by adding more peppers.





    RED HOT SAUCE


    2 qrts. peeled,cored,chopped,red ripe tomatoes
    1 1/2 cups chopped,seeded,hot peppers of your choice
    2 cups vinegar
    1 cup sugar,white or brown
    1 Tbs. salt
    2 Tbs mixed pickling spices
    2 cups vinegar


    Combine tomatoes peppers and 2 cups of vinegar:cook until tomatoes are soft.Press thriugh a sieve or food mill.Add sugar and salt.Tie spices in a cheescloth bag and add to tomato mixture.Cook about 30 minutes or until thick.As mixture thickens stir frequently to prevent sticking.Add remaining 2 cups of vinegar.Cook until thick as wanted.Pour boiling hot into 1/2 pint jars leaving 1/4 inch head space.Jars will seal,if not precess in boiling water bath for 30 minutes and remove jars.Yield eight 1/2 pints.

    I let mine simmer for eight houre to drive in the flavor.It is great I eat it on most anything.

    dacdots,

    Thanks I am going to give this a try.

    Any thought to whether this must age or not? Basically does it improve with age or not enought to make a difference.

    I didnt wait to start using it Cheech but Im sure the spices will continue to blend with the tomato sauce as it sits.

    I would love to try this with an old oak whiskey barrel (after I drink all the whiskey of course)
