Hey all,


I made my first hot sauce last week and it came out alright, I give myself a C+.




.6 lbs of chiles (mostly serrano, a few jalapenos and a few fresnos

3 cloves garlic

2 cups herbal vinegar (apple cider vinegar sitting with lime slices, cilantro, rosemary, etc for 2 weeks)

Salt (eye balled)



- Learned the process

- Flavor came out good, not great

- I have hot sauce



- Propane ran out and peppers did not roast enough

- I did not run the food processor long enough and the consistency was much more thin than I wanted

- My house smelled pretty horrible 


My friend came over yesterday (a lot more experience) and showed me the proper way to make sauce. This came out MUCH better.



- Handful of dried chipotle peppers (hydrated)

- Roasted fresnos, onion, tomatoes 

- Garlic

- Chiltepins (added through tasting)

- Salt


I am now all in on hot sauce making and will continue to try new recipes all year long.


Next up I'm thinking honey, blueberry habanero :)

Looks like your first attempt was a "hot sauce" while your friend made "salsa" sounds good either way, good luck.

Personally, I'll eat a pig's ass if they cook it right.   -CB4-

That salsa sounds good; the house smell thing is the reason why a lot of us make it in commercial kitchens, especially if you have pets
