    Move Over Frank, There's A New Red Hot Sheriff In Town

    My first batches of hot sauce this season. I picked all of the ripe cayenne and arbol peppers from the garden this morning and used a couple of recipes from https://www.chilipeppermadness.com to make these sauces. Coincidentally, there were just enough of each pepper to make a double batch of cayenne (20 oz) and a single batch (5 oz) of arbol per Mike's recipes. I used the Tabasco recipe for the arbols as they are somewhat similar.

    Both turned out really good and we're very pleased with them. The Cayenne, or Louisiana style sauce has a nice richness with mellow heat. The arbol sauce is very sassy with a pretty good bite and lingering heat you get to enjoy for 10 minutes or more!

    I used some high quality white wine vinegar and both are nicely vinegar forward as I used a little more vinegar and a touch of water to thin them down for bottling. There's also a batch of cayennes fermenting in the pantry that will be sauced in about 10 days. I think there's some Buffalo Wings in our not too distant future!

    We also have a little cabinet smoker full of paprika peppers and the dehydrator is full of guajillos. A pretty good day!!

    Outstanding! On my bucket list. When the peppers come, they come in bulk. 🙂 I can’t eat them fast enough. Making hot sauce sounds like the right thing to do.

      It's pretty easy to do, Johnny, this batch was peppers, salt and vinegar, that's it. And some garlic for the cayenne sauce.

      The other thing you can do is dehydrate them. I had ridiculous amounts of peppers this summer because Seattle had a very hot July and August. I dehydrated all my jalapeno’s and then ground them into powder. Now using it when I want some extra pepper flavor profile. I also dried all my serranos and rehydrate them to make chili

        Superb job. They all look wonderful, and I'm jealous AF...lol My gardening was derailed this year by physical issues(resolved). As I garden in Alaska, timing is everything. Next year, watch out. You and I will, hopefully, be asking who's stuff looks better. Judging by the looks of yours, I'll have catching up to do. Kudos!

          Next spring I'll have two 10X20 foot greenhouses and the hydroponics to fill them.

        Looks awesome! I'm just about to start my own hot sauce journey and plan to try both fermented and unfermented sauces. For those that want to try fermenting, I bought one of these kits which currently have a 5 star rating on Amazon with nearly 2200 reviews. You may be able to get them slightly cheaper from either the Costco or Walmart web sites (in Canada, they are $5 cheaper from Costco.ca).

          CaptainMike - thanks for the link to that web site. Good thing today is Sunday or my productivity at work would have been suboptimal. :-)

          Glen and friends did a fermented hot sauce video on you tube which I found interesting/useful, I have made fermented hot sauce now for 3-4 years with good success, it is not hard to do. The fermenting kit is a good idea for someone starting out.

          Looking good Capt.

          I miss making my hot sauces as my wife had me remove my planters last year. 😔

            Yeah Mike. Not a happy camper about this one.
            Really miss my peppers.

            But on the bright side. I am trying to convince her about having a small herb planter next year. 🙏🏻

          I dashed some of the arbol sauce on eggs and potatoes this morning, so good!!! Definitely more arbol chiles in the garden next year.

            That looks professional grade!

            I just dipped into making hot sauce with some Carolina Reapers a co-worker grew...I buried them in the Controlled Burn hot sauce from the free side. It is amazing and I'm totally hooked too. Now I wanna grow my own, especially after seeing your work!

              There's nothing like garden to bottle!! Central Texas should be great for growing peppers too.
