Tried searching but didn't find anything.
We have just about finished our last bottle of sriracha.
With Sriracha basically unavailable, I'd like to make some. I tried once before, it was a delicious sauce, but it wasn't sriracha.

Anyone got a copy cat recipe they like?

Thanks!

P.s. previously I added 2% salt to fresh new Mexican red Chiles and a few cloves of garlic. Fermented for a few weeks and blended with some more fresh garlic, another 2% salt and some sugar (can't remember how much).

What brand sriracha sauce are you trying to replicate? We use Huy Fong Sriracha Chili Hot Sauce. And like it.
 
Didn't even know there were different brands...
That's the one we have and want to replicate.
I'm pretty sure this is fermented like you already suspected. I'm going to watch this thread for ideas. I ferment hot sauces. Just haven't tried this.
 
This guy seems to have experimented some with it. Might be able to get some good ideas from his experience.
 
I just read an article yesterday, some bottles are selling for $70 on some sites. I like it... but not that much!

I saw $120 supposedly, lol.

I look at it from the opposite perspective. If I make just one bottles worth, it easily justifies the new crock I want. Heck, I could buy 2! That's the fastest ROI I've ever seen for a diy anything! 🤣

I agree with Steve H Steve H . I also don't like to blend before ferment. But now I can't remember if I used vinegar...

I also questioned the red jalapenos. But I searched and the Internet seems pretty sure that's the right pepper.

Thanks for the pointer KBFlyer KBFlyer .
 
My goto hot sauce place is right in my home town.

I'm thinking about getting the dill pickle serrano. Intrigued.

I like your thinking!

I'm going to take a shot at this if I can find a supply of red jalapenos or fresnos. Will use a mix of recipes for my own idea. Definitely will ferment whole pepper and do most of the seasoning after.

Yeah, this adds to the conundrum. Fresno's are available but an expensive novelty. Red jalapenos... Never seen them honestly.

At this point I might have to wait until there are ripe yellow hots (red) in September or so.

Might have to phone a (neighbor) friend.
