Author Notes: Homemade DIY hot sauce. Any hot peppers will work, from jalapenos to habaneros to ghost peppers (shown here). You can even mix peppers for a custom blend, and vary the amount of vinegar to adjust the strength. —Kelly Buettner
Makes 2-4 cups
- 4 hot peppers (any kind!)
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon course salt
- 4 cups distilled white vinegar
- De-stem and roughly chop peppers.
- Peel and roughly chop garlic.
- Add with peppers, garlic and salt to a food processor and process until evenly chopped and combined. Set aside in a glass jar, covered for 1-3 days, allowing it to ferment slightly.
- Add 4 cups white vinegar to pepper mix to complete hot sauce. For a stronger sauce, cut the vinegar in half adding only 2 cups. Allow to sit and strengthen for another day before using.
