Homemade hot sauce is a good thing. Whether you like yours mild, medium or wild you can make it so your personal heat level is a happy camper. If you’re thinking it’s difficult, you’d be wrong. Ours comes together lickety split. It’s base is made from our OVEN ROASTED TOMATOES and home grown peppers. The hardest part about this recipe will be deciding what you’d like to use it on first. Hot sauce is a multi purpose condiment. It’s great on sandwiches, meats, veggies, eggs, and just about anything else you can think of. We can’t think of much it’s not good on to be honest.
The heat comes from, you guessed it, the peppers. A jalapeno will give a more mild flavor while peppers like habanero and ghost fall into the if you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen category (which I’m not, I’m a heat wimp what can I say). Whatever you do, don’t touch/rub your eyes after you’ve handled peppers. It’s no bueno. Trust me. Okay to be on the safe side rubber gloves are a very good idea. You’re welcome.
Once you’ve blended the ingredients together, just pour your new favorite condiment into your preferred jars (mine happen to be from World Market – they also just so happen to make great gifts too) and store this Hot as YOU Like it Hot Sauce into the fridge. I think you’ll be surprised how often you’re grabbing this bottle to add a little zip to this that and the other.
