It's my first year making hot sauce, and I've decided to give them as presents. I sourced 50 8oz glass sauce online online pretty cheap.

This is my red hot sauce: red long chillies, garlic, ginger, cardamom, and salt. Fermented in brine for 5 weeks. Mixed with cider vinegar, lemon, and red bell pepper.

I'm also making a hot scotch mango bonnet sauce (pics to follow).

This is my mango hot sauce: scotch bonnets fermented for 5 weeks with salt and garlic, blitzed and added to mango pulp with a little citric acid.

I believe the common name for them is quadra bottles. Here's some I found on amazon.

Already got them designed. They will be presented in these homemade boxes, and with the other items on the list - pickle, chutney, jam and salt. 😁😋

Nice. I've been making hot sauce based on safety tutorials here for about 10 years but never sell it (too much regulation, costs, etc.). So, I give out a lot for gifts to neighbors, friends, co-workers ... no one has ever gotten sick. Sometimes I get an email from an old friend saying, "Yeah, I'm still using that sauce from 4 years ago."  :shocked:  To which I reply, "Throw it out now, I'll send you a fresh batch." I do date my labels and say to pitch after a year, but it's nice to know they held up that long. So, that's one thing you might want to add to the label.

Thanks hottoddy. I have mentioned on the menu that will be in the presentation box when to ditch it. If I give them as presents regularly I will put proper nutrition and expiration labels on.

I definitely like those red ones as Christmas gifts, just imagine a label with a Christmas lights design.... "This sauce will light you up! Merry Christmas!"

They are fairly pricey but I ordered a 12 pack this morning to try out. I do like how OPs looks and agree they would make nice gifts
