Lookin to make my own hot sauce. Would like to do a Pepper based sauce with a bit of heat. Have seen a few posts, does anyone have a good one? Thought I would smoke peppers {red, yellow, green with habanero, jalepeno, ect.} , garlic, onions, tomatoes, then skin and blend, maybe add some vinegar. Any suggestions are appreciated!

    I just take the hot peppers, remove stem, slice, keeping the seeds, soak in vinegar for a few weeks and then use my stick blender to make a sauce. Some batches I add garlic, little sugar, thai fish sauce or a combination. I usually use thai birds beaks chilies, but any hot pepper will work.

    above link was my first attempt there are many recipes on the internet, i now wash, rough chop pour hot salted and sugared vinegar over the top and use the stick blender. put in bottle and pressure cook.. last year i did not do that but i made a lot this and am worried about shelf life,, heating tones down the heat a little but i am using exclusively arkasas death peppers [carribean red variety of a habenero] grown from seeds smuggled into this contry from mexico by an illegal immegrant. it is plenty hot.
  • We lived in Trinidad a few years and really liked their unique style of sauce. Made up a batch this week and turned out very good but not as hot as I remembered.

    Trinidadian Pepper Sauce

    7 Habanero Or Scotch Bonnet Chiles
    15 Garlic Cloves, coarsely chopped
    15 Scallions, cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 large Carrot, coarsely chopped
    1 cup Water
    ¾ cup Distilled White Vinegar
    ½ cup Yellow Mustard
    ⅔ cup Chopped Cilantro Leaves
    2 Tbsp Thyme Leaves
    2 Tbsp Fresh Lime Juice


    In a small saucepan of boiling water, blanch the chiles for 1 minute. Drain and let cool. Discard the stems.

    In a blender or food processor, pulse the chiles with the garlic, scallions, carrot and water until finely chopped. Add the vinegar, mustard, cilantro, thyme and lime juice and pulse just until combined. Season with salt. Transfer the sauce to jars and refrigerate.

    The sauce can be refrigerated for 1 year.
