Hot Pepper Sauce

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by ellie_

This is a great way to use home grown jalapenos instead of buying those little bottles of hot pepper sauce sold in the grocery. This takes 3 months to age. Recipe souce: Mastering Barbecue

This was great and easy to do. Be sure to use the gloves. I used both red and green Jelopenos. I also had sever cayanee peppers in the garden and used some of those. Cant wait for 3 months to come. I took a little taste and it was good and hot. Thanks
