Homemade tabasco sauce

 

 

This is the first year (of the 8 of my urban garden) that I successfully grew a Tabasco plant….. from a seed. I am pretty proud. Holy cow! It makes a LOT of peppers. So I made hot sauce. I recommend opening windows prior to trying this. The air gets a bit spicy.

1 cup tabasco peppers – remove stems

2 teaspoons Himalayan salt

2 cups apple cider vinegar

 

Basically you bring all 3 ingredients to a boil in a saucepan. Allow the mix to boil for 5-7 minutes. Gently crush the peppers with a potato masher. Remove the pan from heat and fully cool. Place the mixture in blender/food processor and blend. Transfer the mix to a sealed container and chill in refrigerator for 3 weeks. Strain the seeds and pepper pieces through a metal strainer. Bottle the remaining juice and enjoy.
