This is by far the single most important thread…Hot Sauce!
Who here is into hot sauces as much as they are gaming? I am looking to share recipes, thoughts and ideas on hot sauces.
Here is a green hot sauce recipe that’s just always in our fridge. This is used by my Wife and I as much as we use ketchup.
Gloves…you need them - nitrile or vinyl which ever work for you, use them when cutting chili peppers!
Peppers are seeded leaving the center (capsaicin glands, placenta - whiteish inner area) as much as possible this is where the heat comes from, contrary to popular belief its not the seeds. You can also leave the seeds in but you will have a different texture and blending will take longer to break them up.
1/2 cup poblano pepper - seeded and chopped
2 cups jalapeno - seeded and chopped
1/2 cup onion
3 gloves garlic, minced or sliced as thin as you can get it - powder if that’s what you have (1/2 TSP powder is 1 clove)
2 TSP salt - Personally I use just 1 TSP
1 TSP Vegetable or other oil
2 cups water
1 cup vinegar
Warning if you have not made hot sauce before or are sensitive to capsaicin the following should be done in a well ventilated area.
-Combine peppers, garlic, onions, salt and oil in a non reactive pan and sauté for 3 mins.
-Add 2 cups of water and simmer for 20 mins stirring frequently ( I cover )
-Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temp
-Use blender to blend until smooth
-Add 1 cup of vinegar and blend until mixed
Optional but recommended
Age in the fridge in a glass container for 2 weeks before use…profit
I make greens, reds…I use habaneros, jalapenos, chili de arbols, cayenne etc etc etc. I am no expert, I just love hot sauces. List out what you have done or like.
