#1505444 Green Jalapeno Fermented Sauce Adjustments

Posted by portveyn on 16 November 2017 - 04:20 PM

I think jalapenos are not good for fermentation. Second time I try and it comes out bad. On the other hand a simple, cooked jalapeno sauce came out delish on the first time. Same ingredients.

Good morning. I finished, and even bottled my slowly fermented jalapeno sauce. It has a lot of garlic, dist ving, cumin, onion powder, and obviously salt in it. A bit of gum too.

This morning I cracked a bottle open...

1.the sauce is a little thicker than needed.
2. the sauce is missing on flavor. I taste garlic, some fermented jalap, some spice & vinegar. Nothing interesting. Heat is mild, but I planned it that way.

What would you do?
Pineapple(juice)? Or more vinegar/water, some superhots, filter and bottle tabasco style?

P.S. pH is 3.2

#1504997 Dave's Ghost Sauce - Must Refrigerate?! :-[

Posted by portveyn on 14 November 2017 - 07:11 AM

Well, I have to take my words back. I tried Melindas and Daves side by side, 3 drops of each, on crackers. Daves Ghost is MUCH hotter! %)

Sauce just came by mail. Tried it on meatballs: the heat was there, but didnt last for long. So I tried again and again. Probably the same heat level as Melindas Ghost sauce, yet Melindas tastes like fresh peppers, and Daves has cooked flavor. Left the sauce in the pantry :-)

I'd like to try that one. I like the regular Texas pete but it's not my favorite "louisana" style. Sometime you can find Texas pete in small packets at fast food restaurants. I usually stock up on those and keep in the car hehe


There is pretty pronounced cumin flavor in that sauce too.

What's your fave Louisiana sauce btw?


Ps I like these packets a lot too!! :-) and ones with relish as well!

I got a bottle (finally) for $2.50 on sale. It's spicy and moderatly hot, with vinegary flavor and smokey & garlicy notes. A step up from generic "Louisiana aged cayenne" sauces.

#1502334 Yeo's Garlic Chili Sauce

Posted by portveyn on 31 October 2017 - 08:37 AM

I grabbed this sauce at Asian supermarket for about $3.

Tasted like Huy Fong Sriracha with fuller body and MORE GARLIC!

The heat is there but it doesn't bother. Delicious and nutritious!

Keep refrigerated after opening :-) Singapore.

#1402452 A1 / Pickapeppa style sauce

Posted by portveyn on 03 January 2017 - 09:21 AM

Happy New Year!

 

Do you guys have any experience making not too hot sauces like A1 or Pickapeppa?

Any other brands you tried that are similar?

   I would like to make some "steak" sauce with tomato base and citrus peel involved.

   Maybe some cloves too, but no sugar. Gotta be less sweet than A1 :) And less salty too.

 

 

   Here's some fun info I found on A1, but it's not enough for the recipe:

  Please let me know if any ideas/recipes you know!

  Thank you.

Tastes like Mexican Salsa. Goes well with many things. Even pizza!
