Fancy, fancy. Looks nice. Do you have special equipment to close the bottles? Obviously you do. Kind of stupid question. But what is it? What kind of equipment?

Glad this was brought up.
First. Did you make that hot sauce or did you buy it?

I will have some very hot peppers come summer. I planted some Ghost chili seeds and I have a few habanero plants to put in the garden along with several other varieties.
There is no way I can eat them all. So I have to think about them now, before I have to do something with them.
Hot sauce seems like an excellent idea, and I think it would make fine small Christmas gifts for my neighbors and friends.

So if you made this hot sauce, please post your recipe.

I am also considering drying the peppers. Should I use my dehydrator or just hang them and allow them to dry slowly?

Remember, if you bottle your own hot sauce, the water bath canning method is insufficient to make them safe, unless there is significant acidity, such as vinegar added to the sauce, which is why so many commercial hot sauces are so vinegary. Me, I use a pressure canner so that I don't have to add vinegar.

I'm sure S&P made the sauce. Looks fantastic!

As far as drying, it's easiest to just hang the peppers and let them dry natually. I have very good results doing this if they're small peppers. You can string them, or pull up the whole plant and just hang that.

Nothing special Charlie, just shrink tubes and a hair dryer!

I make my own using habanaro's. You can also make pepper jelly if you have canning equip. I'm sorry but, I keep the recipe to myself. There are lots of recipes on the net to suit every taste. I buy my peppers, as I don't have room to grow them. I use fresh peppers for my hot sauce, although I have hung them to dry to use on rubs and sauce. Either way they don't loose the heat. 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.

I'm glad your keeping your secrets to yourself.
Easy name to remember. I'll be looking for them in the specialty shopps.
Great job!
