    Homemade hot sauce!

    Had a nice batch of peppers turning red in my garden so I decided to make some hot sauce. Hot sauce has been on my mind after I made that spicy Sriracha ketchup last week.

    I have both hot Apaches and a milder Pompeii peppers growing in my herb garden. The Apaches are small peppers that are a little hotter than Cayenne (and are from the same family). The Pompeii peppers is a larger sweet pepper, but I have noticed that mine have some mild heat to them when they turn red.

    Here are some pictures.

















    Hot Sauce was pretty hot and tasty, with a Sriracha flavor from the garlic and sugar I added.
    There are more pictures and a recipe here. http://www.dfw.com/2013/07/12/809588...hot-sauce.html

    I am pretty happy with the results, I should have another batch of pepper here in a couple of weeks.

    Swgeeks some good recipes here. What i usually do is put the peppers and what ever else in a processional blender and purree everything, strain, warm to thicken then cool. Before bottling I add a bit of corn syrup and fresh fruit (ascorbic acid) to stabilize. Have you ever made the Belizean Hotsauce. I think habanero's have the best flavor.

    I was told that maybe my Pompeii peppers might be getting some of there heat from cross pollinating with my Apaches...
