3 cups hot peppers – combination of super chillis, Carolina reapers, and ghost peppers works well (these grow well in backyard gardens)

1/2 cup white vinegar

1/2 cup water

2 tbsp sugar

1 1/2 tsp salt

3 medium tomatoes (Roma or San Marzan tomatoes work well)


Step 1

Wash peppers and tomatoes and remove tops.

Step 2

Add all ingredients to a blender and puree on high speed for approximately 1 minute.

Step 3

Place chilli puree in a saucepan, bring to a boil, reduce heat, then simmer for 30 minutes. (Use an overhead exhaust fan if cooking in your kitchen or ideally cook outside on a barbecue burner).

Step 4

Place sauce in quarter cup sealer jars and process in a canner for 30 minutes.

Store and enjoy in small quantities – this sauce is hot and you only need a little! Open jars should be refrigerated. This hot sauce is a tasty condiment to use on sandwiches, burgers, pasta, eggs, and can be added to any soup, sauce or stew if you like to add spice to your meals.
