hi, this might be a stupid question but I'll ask it anyway
I have several peppers -- some yellow (fatalli, hot lemon and yellow fresno) and some red (mostly tabasco with a few serranos thrown in) that I want to make hot sauce out of. My dilemma is that while I got a lot (not the tabascos) earlier in the summer, right now they are ripening pretty slowly. So, while I wait to get enough to make a decent batch of sauce, I have them chopped (the yellow) and whole-ish (the red) in big jars with regular white vinegar (with a little salt) in the fridge, adding more peppers to the jars as they ripen.
my question(s) is, is this ok to do? Is it the right thing to do? I didn't want to freeze them, although I guess I COULD have....
they seem fine so far (not molding) but not sure if there's a better way to "hold onto" peppers while waiting to get enough to make a sauce with.
any help would be appreciated!!!
ps. This was haul #4, with some tomatoes in there too, from 9/8/18 - it's been pretty slim pickings since then and I dried most of what you see here....
