Jalapeno seeds into sauce?

I've got all these jalapeno seeds left over after stuffing the peppers. Is there a way to turn this into a hot sauce?

The seeds alone would provide some heat but no pepper flavor. You could add them to a sauce recipe to provide added heat.

Maybe a better use for them is to plant them and grow your own peppers. They are really easy to grow.

You need the whole pepper to make sauce. But if you grow some you can make your own sauce later this summer.

You would really need a large quantity of seeds to do this ...

Throw the seeds and some vinegar (5% acid) into a food processor or blender and let it rip for about 30 seconds. Put into a sauce pan, bring to a boil, cover and remove from the heat and allow to come to room temp. Pour into a sterile jar/bottle and allow to sit for 3-8 weeks at room temp.

Obviously - the more seeds and the less vinegar the hotter it will be (less diluted).
