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.
