Making Hot Sauce

Recommended Posts

Who has done it? I went to a wedding last month, a guy made some homemade ghost pepper sauce, it sent me into a sweaty bung burning spiral. Even though it burned, it tasted amazing. There aren't too many hot sauces that I don't like, but there are a few that taste like dump to me. Tobasco is nasty, I can handle the heat, it's just the tangy fermented taste that gets me gagging. I love their green sauce though. 


I've got some ingredients laying around that will be melded into my own unique hot sauce, I like flavor as well as a good burn in my hot sauce. I'll let you know how this turns out once I figure out just what I'm going to do, in the mean time if anyone has any good recipes they'd like to share I'd love to hear them.

There are a few posts on making Home made hot sauce down the thread line in the Cooking area.


I just go pick up a ton of Jalapenos at Walmart or Cub and blend them in a blender with a cup of white vinegar. All my relatives loved it. I also have made a few XXX ones just for me using Habaneros,Thai peppers and Ghost peppers but they cost a lot more to buy. :)

Ok I had about a dozen and a half jalapenos, mixed red and green, and about a half dozen anaheim chilis left from the garden. I rough chopped those after I slid them under the broiler for a few minutes alongside 5 or 6 cloves of garlic. It went into a pot with a cup and a half of white vinegar, the juice from a couple of limes and a can of chipotle peppers and adobo sauce to add a little smokiness. That all simmered for a while before I stuck it all into a blender with about a cup of apple cider vinegar and let that blend for a while. I strained it through a wire strainer and it has been in the fridge for a few days. Wow it is so good, the spice level is approaching hot but the flavor is amazing.

Took your advise Jim and made some sauce kinda following your recipe, I smoked the peppers on the grill with wood chips instead of broiling. Turned out sweet, smokey and packing quite the punch.


What am I gonna put it in?

Mrs Duff says I have the perfect thing for it, and yes she did.......

    • Probably something like electric cars that was never going to happen!  Only the future will know.
    • scary interesting...
    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye.

    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution
    • Water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle.
    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
