A dehydrator is fine too. Then through a spice grinder. With fresh peppers I par boil them in vinegar and run them through a food strainer to separate the seeds and skins.
Thats fine on the recipe. My favorite bottle hot sauce is nothing more than peppers, vinegar and some salt.
I am certain I could make it without an ingredient list is what I mean. Thanks for the suggestions.

Chief. Thanks once again. It will be a few months before I am ready to do anything with fresh or dried peppers.
I do not have a canning machine and nor do I know how to can, even though I have tried before.
I just know that I will have way more than I can use and I would like to find a way to preserve them.
My wife laughs at me because we can buy two(2) extra big bottles of Franks hot sauce at Costco for less than $8.
They also have the giant bottle of Tabasco sauce for less than two pepper plants cost. She thinks I'm nuts for doing all this work when I can just open a bottle. We have both in stock here right now.

I've heard that comment too. Just remind her it's about the journey, not the destination.

Here's a very good article on preserving hot sauce. By "canning machine," do you mean a pressure canner? You don't necessarily need one for canning, but the article includes another method that might work for you: http://thehotpepper.com/topic/29501-...hot-sauce-101/

You can freeze peppers whole, then thaw them to use in recipes; they get soft, so they wouldn't work for something like ABTs but they're fine for a sauces, etc.

She says the same thing about the garden. Just because they are selling tomato's on every corner during the summer, does not mean I should not grow some too!

Thanks GG. I have attempted to can using a boiling pot of water before, but I was not certain they were preserved correctly.
I will check out the link!

If my memory is still intact, didn't you make some way back when and post the pictures here? The second I saw this batch, the label looked very familiar to me. I remember thinking that the name was so simple, how could anyone ever forget it.

Yes Addie, I've been making the sauce for about a year now.
