Does anyone have a good basic hab sauce with a fruit in it? I am looking for a low <4.0 ph so I can hot fill. Only looking to make a few woozies worth. Thanks!

If i am correct, you mix your recipe as you wish....then adjust (lower) the ph prior to bottling with an acid.

 

Vinegars, lime juice. Without a ph meter or similar test strip I wouldn't be able to tell.

 

The cooked sauce I made yesterday after the addition of vinegar came in at 4.7. I added 1 TBLS of lime juice and it went down to 3.6, safe to bottle.

 

I am learning myself...really can't say enough how handy the ph meter has become.

Thanks. I dont have a ph meter so was hoping if some had a tried and true recipe they knew - as is - was low, then that could work. Which ph meter do you have?

mine is a Milwauke brand  and yellow in color.

 

If you don't need long term storage and just keep it in the fridge 2 -3 weeks, make your sauce and enjoy it as is.

 

The need for low ph is for long term storage..there are a couple new posts on the front page of sauce making that did just that...made a quick sauce to be stored in the fridge and used soon.

Take a look for "ph meter" on ebay and you will find plenty of affordable meters.

Basic PH meters are pretty cheap and will get you into the ball park, like 10-15 bucks will put you into the game. Ya you can spend hundreds on a meter if you wish, but its not necessary. The trick to any meter is calibration and maintenance.
