Joined because I want to know if trying to make a hot sauce is worth my time or if its too much effort. I use hot sauce on almost anything I eat. The sauce I find the most amazing is Chipotle Slam from Blairs. I really dont find any other sauces like it. Its not overly powerful that puts you in pain but its incredbly flavorful and it makes anything I eat with it amazing. I have used sauces as hot as Blairs ultra death and after death but its really not enjoyable. Id do a drop on an entire cheese steak. After pushing myself to sauces like that Ive come back to a range that makes my food enjoyable, not painful.
My interests in sauces are for direct application to food. I dont really make soups or chili.

Im here to see if making sauces of this style and quality is a reasonable expectation. Most notable this sauce has a much thicker and chucky consistency.

Get you a cheap ph meter off of Amazon. I really enjoy making sauce. I've done 3 batches so far.

There is a thread here that tells you everything you need to know to make a safe product.

Joined because I want to know if trying to make a hot sauce is worth my time- absolutely or if its too much effort- absolutely not. I use hot sauce on almost anything I eat. The sauce I find the most amazing is Chipotle Slam from Blairs. I really dont find any other sauces like it. Its not overly powerful that puts you in pain but its incredbly flavorful and it makes anything I eat with it amazing. I have used sauces as hot as Blairs ultra death and after death but its really not enjoyable. Id do a drop on an entire cheese steak. After pushing myself to sauces like that Ive come back to a range that makes my food enjoyable, not painful.

Im here to see if making sauces of this style and quality is a reasonable expectation- with a little creativity, you can do whatever you want. Most notable this sauce has a much thicker and chucky consistency.

 

I've made quit a few sauces and really enjoy both the end result and the process.  You can hone a sauce recipe to your individual tastes and end up with a stable of sauces to choose from depending on the food at hand or your mood.

 

If you enjoy eating it you are bound to enjoy making it.

There's also a great self-satisfaction from a sauce you have created yourself.


So many peppers, so little time!             GO  BUCKEYES !            Anymore, it seems the only thing I get done quickly is get older
