House Made Hot sauce

Food — By Crust on October 26, 2009



My hands are burning right now, I’ve washed them a million times and I even wore gloves. I had to de-seed a case of peppers that were not selling in the grocery part of the place I work.

The chef wanted to make pepper jelly, but I told him that I have a special power of feeling what people want, and people don’t want pepper jelly, they want house made hot sauce. I think the chef has had quite enough of me, but he agreed to let me do hot sauce instead. I did an old school tabasco preparation with white vinegar and salt, and a frank’s red hot type with other additions like garlic and such. I don’t know what kind of peppers they were, or if they are green because they are not ripe or if they are turning red because they are going bad. But the sauces tasted good. I want to can it but I don’t know what kind of container to use, a jar just doesn’t seem right.

    Sorry about the liter containers I should have downsized into 500’s!

    Yeah, I’m drying some and they are turing red and look like the dried cayenne that we get from this spice guy. I bet they are.
