Author Notes: A friend in my recipe club Just a Pinch, gave me this recipe that was made by her Aunt Sadie.
Every old timey rest here in the South would have a bottle of this on their tables.
You can vary the hot peppers, I have even used the hot Thai peppers, just use at least 2 varieties for color and flavor.
