Homemade Hot Sauce Recipe


Homemade Hot Sauce Recipe

Hot, spicy and tangy! This homemade hot sauce recipe is delicious. It can be used as a condiment, or to add kick to your next recipe. This is a fantastic use of garden peppers.

Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Cook time: 30 Minutes

Ingredients:

1 large Onion, minced
4 cups White Vinegar, divided
4 TBSP Minced Garlic
½ tsp Oregano
½ tsp Cumin
½ tsp Mustard Powder
½ tsp Turmeric
½ tsp White Pepper
2 lbs Hot Peppers, variety

Directions:

• Put on latex gloves (IMPORTANT!), and open a window if you can.
• Clean and core peppers. Note: leave some seeds. That is where the heat comes from.
• Add all ingredients, except one cup of vinegar (hold back to rinse out blender after last blend) to a blender and process on high until smooth; you may need to do this in batches. After the last batch, pour that one cup of vinegar into the blender. This will allow the bits and pieces of pepper, onions and garlic left in the blender to dislodge. This also goes into the saucepan.
• Pour resulting sauce to a large covered saucepan.
• Bring to a boil, and then reduce heat to a simmer.
• Simmer 15 minutes
• While simmering, sterilize small glass canning jars, steel tongs, rings, lids and steel ladle in boiling water for 12 minutes, allow to cool, remove and dry.
• When jars are dry and cool enough to handle, bring hot sauce back up to a boil. You want the hot sauce at boiling temperature when you transfer it. The liquid needs to be very hot to create the vacuum with your lid.
• Using a ladle, portion the hot sauce into the jars leaving 1/2″ head space.
• Put lid on jar, place ring and tighten by hand.
• Turn jars upside down, allowing to cool until jars can be handled by hand
• Wrap jars in aluminum foil to keep out light.
• Put filled hot sauce jars in the back of your refrigerator for a week prior to consuming.
• Store in refrigerator at all times.

Homemade Hot Sauce Recipe


We had a lot of hot peppers when hubby decided to make hot sauce. He did it a few times, and this is the recipe he made up. This had rave reviews! It is flavorful, and not just hot. To see how hot (or mild) your hot sauce will be, refer to the Scoville scale. Mix and match your hot peppers for interesting flavors.

• Put on latex gloves (IMPORTANT!), and open a window if you can.
• Clean and core peppers. Note: leave some seeds. That is where the heat comes from.

Hubby gave these away to a lot of people, and he was always asked for seconds a few weeks later. Leave the aluminum foil on the jars when you give them away, as well as in your refrigerator. Make sure those that you give your hot sauce to know to keep the aluminum foil on at all times!

  1. This looks so easy Ann, and I know it will be tasty! Why are we keeping the aluminum foil over it and also keeping it in the fridge if you just canned them? It’s early, I’m having my first cup…

    • Hi Didi!!!

      Hubby said light will make it go bad faster. Hubby does not think is acidic enough for shelf stable. He keeps it in the refrigerator just to be sure.

  2. Ahhhhh!! 😉

  3. If it is canned in the canner or water bathed would it still be required to store in the refrigerator before opening.

    • Don’t let those jars and tools cool down. Use some sterilized tongs to handle the hot jars and lids. Put the boiling hot food into the jars and seal them immediately. Then give them a boiling bath. You can sterilizes the jars in the oven at 225 degrees for around 25 minutes. It is way easier. I have been doing it like this for years. Before you bathe them, let them cool. Then put them in a pot with warm water, then bring them up to boiling gradually. This way, the jars won’t break from the shock of being plunged into boiling water. Good luck.

  4. I make mine using jalapenos I grow myself. I chop up the jalapenos, a carrot, 1/2 of an onion boil in a little water. Blend smooth then put into jars and add warm vinegar, let it cool then cover and refrigerate. I only make one or two jars at a time so mine goes fast. If you have any kind of breathing problems I would not recommend you to make this recipe as the smell of the peppers can make it difficult for some people. I always open the kitchen window and the patio doors before I heat up the ingredients.

  5. I can’t wait to make this. My hubby loves hot sauce and we have TONS of tomatoes and peppers from our garden. Found you on Monday Funday. Great recipe!

  6. This looks great, I’ve wanted to start canning for a while and I love hot sauce, definitely pinning this for when I start that venture. Thanks for sharing
