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




• 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




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




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.
