Spicy foods are a big hit at our Tiny Ranch! In fact, hot sauce is our favorite condiment, and is used at every meal.
I used to go through so many of those little bottles of purchased hot sauce, until I found a source for the gallon size. Now, I easily make our own version, and I’d like to share our recipe. I usually make anywhere from 5-7 gallons of this per summer, and store it in the empty vinegar bottles.
18-20 cayenne peppers
1 ½ cups apple cider vinegar
2 tsp, minced garlic
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder
Combine all ingredients in a large saucepan, and bring to a boil. Simmer until the peppers are soft- approximately 20 minutes. Let cool. Process in a blender or VitaMix until the peppers are finely chopped. Strain the liquid into a clean jar or bottle, and it is ready to enjoy!
