It is very easy to make a good, homemade hot sauce.
Even though virtually all chile pepper sauces have a base combination of peppers and vinegar, you can add all kinds of ingredients to a hot sauce. The possibilities are endless! Just a smattering of comparable components to add to the aforementioned two ingredients:
- Fresh Mango
- Sweet Peppers
Below is the simple photography of a basic hot sauce, which is almost like a thinner-viscosity pepper mash.
We start with vegetables galore…
I also made Giardinera and used quite a variety of peppers and vegetables.
Okay, it’s time to make some simply, homemade hot sauce…
The peppers that will go into the hot sauce: numerous cayennes and a couple of orange habaneros.
The homemade hot sauce will end up having a dominant cayenne taste and heat (which most chileheads will agree has a very nice, pleasing, and basic taste and medium heat level), with just a little amount of added fire from the habaneros.
The chiles getting washed and cut, and ready for the boil!
Boiling up the peppers and garlic in vinegar, for about 20 minutes. The smell at this point is very pungent and starts to fill the kitchen!
The chile peppers boiled, ready for the blender. Guard your nose – you won’t want to breath this in directly!
Blended up – very nice consistency and a gorgeous bright orange color.
You end up with a very vibrant color. Here, the sauce is funneled into a re-purposed hot sauce bottle.
If you wish to do this yourself, please play around and add different veggies and spices, and have fun!
