Homemade Hot Sauce

September/October 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (69 votes)

This homemade hot sauce makes good use of the bountiful tomatoes, onions and peppers in your garden or farmers' market. Adjust the heat to your preference: in our tests, two habaneros yielded a pleasantly spicy sauce without excessive heat—take it up a notch for spicy-food fans by adding extra hot peppers.

Very easy to make with delicious results. I modified the recipe adding a local variety of hot pepper (rocoto) and more common chili peppers, with seeds. The result is excellent.

I don't understand why you

I don't understand why you strain and discard the solids. You are throwing away good food.
