Hot Pepper Vinegar Sauce

 

Growing up, we always had a bottle of some kind of hot pepper

 

 

sauce on the table.  My dad made his own with tobasco peppers

 

 

and vinegar.  He used it on everything-eggs, potatoes, greens-just

 

 

about anything.  I love it on pinto beans, greens and cornbread.

 

 

Tobasco peppers-You can use different levels of ripeness

 

 

   or all ripe peppers.  

 

 

  Always wear food safe gloves when handling peppers

 

 

   and NEVER touch your face or rub your eyes!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hot Pepper Vinegar Sauce

 

 

Ingredients

• Tobasco peppers-green, yellow and red if you have them

   Chile or jalapeno peppers will work too.

•  1 cup vinegar (I like apple cider)

•  1 Tbsp sugar

•  1 tsp sea salt

You will need bottles, preferable with drippers and caps, but

 

used, clean recycled bottles with a secure caps are a great

 

option.  I've used Worchestershire, soy sauce and olive oil

 

bottles.

Instructions

1.  Wash the peppers and cut the stems to ¼-inch; let dry on paper

 

 

    towels.

2.  Pack peppers into the bottles, with stems facing up.

3. In a microwave safe bowl, heat vinegar, sugar and salt until

    completely dissolved; fill bottles with the mixture until the

 

 

    peppers are covered.  Pop in the drippers and cap;  store in a

 

 

    dark cabinet for a few weeks.
