    hot sauce-if i use both red and green jalapenos will the final product look ugly?

    i have a bunch of jalapeno plants.

    i want to make a siracha type sauce. maybe even can some of it. my plants are roughly 50/50 green - red chili laden.

    the red ones are getting older and is getting those micro cracks.

    i just want to clip them all and knock out whatever sauce i can. will the color become brownish?

    I make hot sauce like this with serranos and a Anaheims all the time at work. It's always brown. But that doesn't mean it doesn't look nice. It's great as long as it tastes delicious it could be any color that it wants to be.

    i dont mind "brown". i just dont want ugly.

    i give away various sauces and jams for the holidays. i am surrounded by retired old ladies in my culdesac. they get a kick out of me trying to do things they grew up doing. i want to give them a respectable hot sauce. thanks brad.

    Speaking as a retired old lady, what's more important than how it looks is how it's delivered--a big hug and a kiss on the cheek are essential. And if you make it too pretty, it will become a trophy ("look what that nice boy boomchakabowwow made for me") and it won't get eaten.
